    State Fair Livestock Quotas for YMC 4-H

    State Fair Livestock Quotas for YMC 4-H may look a little different this summer. Due to overcrowding in the barns, and overall risk management practices, livestock quotas across the state have been reduced. There is no longer an additional trip for 90% showmanship. However, there are opportunities to win extra trips in each species for 2019! Check out this article to see our livestock quotas, and learn more about earning additional trips for next year.
