LIVESTOCK AUCTION PROJECTS
The 4-H Livestock Auction Project area includes meat goats, sheep, swine, and beef. Beef projects must be registered by January 6, 2014 and all the other species at our mandatory tagging and weigh-in on June 7, 2014. Please note that tagging/weigh-ins is a ONE DAY event this year. Most of these projects end at the Delaware County Fair when the livestock auction is held.
Please call for more information or look under program registration/forms on this website to get an livestock auction project record form.
Livestock Auction Reg Form 2014-FILLABLE FORMAT
Did you know that people who do not live on a farm or do not have registered stock can still have a 4-H animal project? A program called "4-H Project Animal"; allows youngsters the chance to care for an animal and show it just as their own. Some restrictions do apply: a dairy animal has to be non-milking (any 4-Her who already owns purebred stock is not eligible). A 4-Her may designate two (2) non-owned animals as their project animal, but can only show ONE non-owned animal at the fair. Request a "Non-Ownership Certification" form from the Extension office and sign up a new exhibitor. Project animals can be dairy cattle, beef cattle, dairy goat, meat goat, sheep, swine, horse, and dog.
For more information on this program, please call John Hannum at 865-6531 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
