4-H Beef Identification Day set for Jan. 5 at Hier’s Park

Huntington County will hold its annual 4-H Beef Identification Day on Saturday, Jan. 5, 2013, at the cattle barns at Hier's Park.

Huntington County 4-H members planning to exhibit beef steers and/or non-registered breeding heifers must bring their animals for weighing, identification and ear-tagging between the hours of 9 a.m. and noon.

Animal enrollment forms will be mailed the week of Dec. 18 to all 4-H beef members who were enrolled in the 4-H beef project for the previous year.

The county Extension office has additional copies of the necessary paperwork for interested youth who have not yet received the forms.

All paperwork much be completed during the Jan. 5 identification day.
