Hey all,

I wanted to send a quick reminder that some of the early validation tag order deadlines are coming up next Thursday, August 19, 2020 at 12:00 Noon for fall heifer validation and Major Lamb/Goat Validation.  Please be sure to get those orders placed online or post-marked on August 19th.  This will be the same due date as State Fair and Heart of Texas entries.  We also wanted to remind you of some of the local livestock show updates for Bastrop and Elgin.  Remember to make an appointment to drop items off at the County Extension Office 😊
