Market Livestock Information

Livestock Educational Requirement
Market livestock members must attend and/or participate in at least three educational events or activities related to the market livestock projects of beef, sheep, swine, and meat goat in order to sell at the livestock premium sale.  Activities or events can be Elk County livestock events, out of county spring shows and/or livestock judging contests, and some other events will count as well.  Local club tours and meetings will not count.  Please check with Richard about an event to see if it will count or not if you have any questions.  It is the responsibility of the family or 4-H'er to let the Extension Office know what event you attended/participated in order to receive credit.
