Livestock Identification

Animal identification is the basis for keeping accurate production records of the herd/flock. Individual animal identification allows 4-H youth producers to keep records on an animal's parentage, birth date, production records, health history, and a host of other important management information.

4-H Livestock must be properly identified in 4-H Online by May 15 each year!

Livestock not properly identified may not exhibit at the Pike County 4-H Fair that year.
