We will be weighing and tagging 4-H market beef on January 7, 2017. This will be the only weigh date for 2017. To be eligible for the rate of gain contest at the county fair, you do need to weigh your animal that day. Those 4-H’ers who plan to exhibit at the Nebraska State Fair and Ak-Sar-Ben will need to have DNA pulled which is $6 each as well as be tagged with an EID tag (Electronic ID tag).
