STATE FAIR EXHIBITORS—Any market beef going to State Fair will need an EID tag, DNA samples taken & weights. It will be your responsibility to get the DNA pulled, calves weighed and the information in to the office on time. You can have your calves weighed on a scale someplace and bring the ticket into the office or you can come and use the scale at the fairgrounds. You will need to make arrangements ahead of time to use the scale here.
PREMISES ID – Exhibitors of any animal that carries an EID tag is required to obtain a Premises ID from the NE Department of Ag for the location where the livestock are housed. This ID will need to be reported to the Extension Office by March 30 for Market Beef and June 1 for everything else. A flyer has been mailed out and is on our website.
