Beef Weigh-In - Saturday, December 7, 2013

Beef Weigh-In 2013
WHEN:                       Saturday, December 7, 2013
WEIGH-IN TIME:       9am to 11am
LOCATION:               Alta Livestock
COST:                        County Ear tag per animal - $2.00
All market steers, market heifers, calf pens of three, yearling pens of three or 2nd year bottle/bucket calf will be weighed-in. 
As per the 2013 state rules update, if a 4-H’er tags, ID’s and weighs in a market heifer in January, but decides to switch and enter that same heifer as a breeding at county or state fair that is just fine as long as she was ID’ed in 4-H Online. 
Please make sure if you are not positive which way you are going with your heifer at weigh-in time that you designate a breed at that time.  After February 1st if a breed is not designated in  4-H Online you will only be able to show as a crossbred. 
After weigh-in you are required to verify the information that will be entered in 4-H Online. If the information is correct you will just click save, if not you will need to call the Buena Vista County Extension Office to have it corrected.  
Please refer to the enclosed important information on the reverse side that was also mailed in the November 4-H Motivator. Also enclosed is the 4H202 Iowa Livestock Show Requirements with important information marked. 
All the rest of the paperwork will be at weigh-in.  Please contact me if you have any questions at the office 712-732-5056 or email athom@iastate.edu. If you have an emergency on Saturday, December 7th please call me at 712-730-5056.
