VOLUNTEERS NEEDED FOR JUDGING:

  • To help our kiddos out, we need a few people (adults and senior aged 4-H members) to help us judge recordbooks at the County and District Levels
  • Judging recordbooks is a great way to learn more about the project areas, get some cool ideas for formatting your recordbook, and some cool ideas for us to do for our 4-H members here in our own county!
  • Check out the 2 opportunities below!
    • COUNTY JUDGING:
      • June 7-10, 2021: We are going to switch recordbooks for 1 week with Travis County 4-H
      • Judging will take place at the Bastrop County Extension Office over a 4 day period, so you can come and go as needed and have a few options for participating!  The big thing that we ask is that you help finish the category that you start judging.  There are usually 3-5 books for each category at the county level and will take about 1-2 hours to complete.  You can help with as few or as many as you are able!
      • Senior Aged 4-H Members (9-12 grades) are allowed to sign up to judge the Junior age categories!

All livestock projects that exhibitors would like to show in the fall major livestock shows (State Fair or Heart of Texas) and/or major livestock shows (Fort Worth, San Angelo, San Antonio, Houston, Rodeo Austin, etc.) MUST be state validated for the 2020-2021 4-H/school year – to receive the validation day details and enter large animals in the fall or spring major livestock shows, you must purchase validation tags.

NEW CHANGES TO BE AWARE OF THIS YEAR:

  • Steers – we NO longer have to do nose prints!!!  **you may now celebrate**
  • Hogs:
    • Crossbred gilts showing at the State Fair of Texas and Heart of Texas MUST be validated.
    • State Validation tags must be in the pigs ear when it enters the holding pens. This means tags cannot be in the hand or pocket. Any pig entering the holding pen without a tag will not be allowed to show.
  • Breeding Lambs/Goats: Beginning June 1, 2021, registered breeding sheep, registered breeding goats, wether/commercial dams, and wether/commercial does will have 3 total years of eligibility UNLESS A CHANGE OF OWNERSHIP TAKES PLACE. This will be offered during major show validation as well. Put plainly- if you validate for State Fair during the June 2021 validation period, your validation will be eligible until June 2024, unless a change of ownership occurs during that time- then you must re-validate.

REMINDER FOR RABBIT & HORSE EXHIBITORS:

  • Rabbits – do NOT have a state validation, you will need to double check the show rules for tattoo and breeding requirements, as well as if there is a separate validation date you are required to attend.  Note that validation dates may be separate from the entry deadline dates.

    • A few reminders:
      • Each validation must include front view, right side view, and left side view images.  The entire horse should be included in the photo and marking should be clearly visible.
      • If the horse is registered, a copy of the registration papers must be uploaded.  These papers must list the 4-Her, parent, sibling, grandparent or legal guardian as the current owner.  If the ownership is in the process of being transferred, please list “pending” in the registration number area.  Once the updated registration papers have been received please send a copy to me and I can add it to the validation.
      • Uploads must be images, pdfs are not an accepted file type.
