Animal ID Deadline

All animals (breeding beef, dairy, dog, dairy goats, meat goats, horse, llama, rabbit, sheep, swine, poultry) must be identified in 4Holine by May 15 state ID deadline. You must be "active" in your enrollment in order to access the 4-H Animal ID process on 4Honline.


Stop by the 4-H Office in McIntosh to get your animal ID tags. Please send an email or call ahead to have the tags ready for you. Taggers and pins are also available.
