Purdue Extension: Expert Resources for COVID-19


April 23, 2019

It's time for 4-H SWINE ID! Please identify your animals in 4Honline by May 15! Complete instructions are included in the related files. Please download and read or complete the 2019 Franklin County 4-H Swine Files in the related files below.

Important Note:  There is a $4 per head charge for RFID tags, and all hogs must be RFID tagged. You can either purchase tags from the extension office before the fair and tag the hogs yourself, or bring exact change to the fair check in and we will tag them at the fair.

We've also included DNA hair sample instructions and a how to video link for those going to state fair.

Refer to this year's Franklin County 4-H Rulebook for complete project information.
