Garden County Livestock Record Book

In 2018, Garden County has optional livestock record books that can be completed and entered at the fair.  These are due at 8:00 Saturday morning of the fair. No late record books will be excepted. Regardless of species, all age groups will compete for a cash prize. The top junior (8-10 yrs old) will receive $25, top intermediate (11-13 yrs old) will receive $50, and the top senior (14-18) will receive $75. You are encouraged to enter a book for each of your species. However, entering one for each species will only increase your chances at the top award because you have more options to choose from. We are looking for completeness and thoughtful answers!

You are allowed to download the above excel files, edit and print at home. We suggest you print each page individually instead of printing entire workbook at one time. You may need to select "Scale to one Page" when you print to get it print on one page. If you do not want to print, you can come to the office to get a hard copy that youth can write on.

Youth for the Quality Care of Animals (YQCA) is the national quality assurance program we will be using this year. It is very simple to use! First, you must re-enroll on 4HOnline or none of this will work – go to (If you need your password reset, please call the office for assistance.) Once you have that completed, you go to will then use your log in information from 4HOnline to get into the system. Please do not sign up as an independent! Once in as a family, you have to sign in as each youth so that they have the correct courses for their age level. Once in, you will get to a page that has all of the course options listed by age. Your child’s correct one will be highlighted. Select it. Then you will need to decide if the youth is going to do the online version for $12 or the Instructor Led face-to-face class for $3
