Important message to our stakeholders, friends, and families from Purdue Extension
Recently several pork processors have made announcements that will greatly affect the Indiana swine industry.
4-H members (Grades 3 - 12) must identify all Beef and Dairy Cattle, Goats, Horses, Llamas, Sheep and Swine in the 4HOnline system by the species deadline or earlier county deadline if applicable to be eligible for exhibition.

Help Purdue Extension provide relevant services for everyone! We have available this brief survey to help us identify important programs and areas that we can provide. Your participation is completely anonymous and data obtained from this survey will only be used by the Purdue Extension staff. Thank you in advanced for your honest and complete responses!

Welcome new 4-H Families!
A premise ID number is required for all Beef, Dairy, Goat, Poultry, Sheep, and Swine Entries. A member's parents can apply for a premise I.D. number from the Indiana Board of Animal Health. This I.D. number must be written on the animal's I.D. worksheet and entered into 4HOnline.com.
