County Fair & State Fair Beef Fitting Guidelines

NOTICE: LATE FEE POLICY - 4-H Council has enacted a late fee of $10 per member for those that are late with ID sheets, entries (county, state, Ak-sar-ben), and future enrollments. Identification forms and or entries may be submitted up to 5 days past the specified due date (County Fair only) and are subject to this late fee. ID FORMS AND ENTRIES WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED AFTER THIS 5 DAY PERIOD! If you are late with identification forms for State Fair or Ak-Sar-Ben, you may be ineligible to exhibit at these shows. We give ample advance notice of these throughout the year in the news letter, email, Facebook, etc., so don't procrastinate or you will be assessed the late fee or not be able to enter exhibits.
