2020 Animal Science Updates

FOR 2020 ONLY: Deadline Extension to June 1


MN 4-H has extended the deadline for ownership, animal ID tagging, and entry into 4HOnline until June 1st for 2020 only. This is in response to the changing social distancing guidelines and face to face cancellation period through June 30. All animals that are shown in Minnesota 4-H exhibitions (e.g. fairs or alternative showcases) must be properly ID'd by June 1.


The Extension Office is closed to the public but is practicing social distancing guidelines so you can receive ID tags through our curbside pick up and drop box options. If you need tags, please fill out the 4-H Family Tag Request Form Then call the Extension Office at 444-5722 to determine a pick up time.


Families must place tags in animal ears and record identification data in 4HOnline by June 1. Any unused tags must be returned to our office by June 15.
