Livestock ID deadline extended!

Our animal identification system will remain in place. The deadline is extended to June 1, 2020.

Our office is closed to the public, but we are still able to provide 4-H tags to families. If you need tags, please fill out the 4-H Family Tag Request Form and we will fill your order.

  • Tags will be dispensed by a 'dropbox' method.
  • We will have a drop box located at the Lincoln County Courthouse.
  • Families must pick up their tags on the assigned day and time.
  • Please call Jill at 507-694-1470 to arrange pickup.
  • She will set tags outside the front door of the courthouse for you to pick up.
  • She'll include an invoice for your tags and you can mail your payment to our office.

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. Livestock families received a detailed letter and email about ID'ing animals, and you can learn more on our website.

While your youth are home and looking for things to fill time, encourage them to explore livestock demonstrations and Science of Animals projects to extend learning. Watch this video for more information on Science of Animals.
