Otoe County 4-H

Exhibitors of 4-H beef, swine, sheep and goats that carry an EID tag will be required to obtain a Premises ID number through the Nebraska Department of Agriculture at no cost to the exhibitor.  Premise ID is by the location of where the animal is located - so whomever owns the property where the 4-H animal is located is who must obtain the Premise ID.  That Premise ID must then be reported to the local county Extension Office where the 4-H animal will be shown.

Premise ID required for all animals with an EID tag

New in 2017 is that all animals that have and EID tag (beef, swine, sheep and goats) are required to have a Premises ID number through the Nebraska Department of Agriculture.
