Livestock Designation Forms
Dear Butler County Livestock Project Members Parents and Leaders:
All beef, sheep, and swine taken as 4-H breeding projects for the 2017 4-H year must be recorded on this designation form. This policy is consistent with other project animals such as dairy cattle and horses. Project Designation Forms must be completed and received in the Extension Office no later than 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 1. Please complete a separate form for each species. Members who fail to turn in their project designation forms by 4:30 p.m. on June 1 will not be eligible to participate in county roundup (Department 10 Junior shows at Butler Farm Show). If you have pending registration numbers, please write “pending” in the registration number blank and return the form by June 1. Pending registration numbers must be called in to the Extension Office by Wednesday, July 19, 2017.
Animals that have been tagged and designated as market projects do not need to be included on this form.
This form is the Extension Office record of what animals you are taking as 4-H projects. You will need to keep records on all animals you designate as 4-H projects. This form does not take the place of entries for the Butler Fair or Butler Farm Show. You still must complete entry forms for any livestock you exhibit at any of the shows.
If you have any question regarding the Livestock Project Designation Form, please contact the Extension Office immediately. Don’t wait until it is too late to ask your questions. Project designation forms will not be accepted after June 1.
