Dear 4-H and FFA Families,

Over the past few years we have had some issues with obtaining CORRECT & COMPLETE Brand Papers or Bills of Sale for market beef projects. This issue needs to change and be resolved. Improperly filled out documents will no longer be accepted. The Livestock Committee has provided this brand paper & bill of sale packet for your convenience. Please look this over if you are planning on showing market beef or participating in the carcass contest.
