Livestock Ownership Papers
All purebread animals must be registered solely in the 4-H'ers name (not a sibling or farm name). All papers MUST be on the fairgrounds and WILL BE checked. If papers are not on fairgrounds, 4-H'er will be disqualified from showing. All animals eligible to be registered or recorded in their respective accredited association(s) must be registered. Again, when registering an animal, it must be in the name of the 4-H owner/exhibitor only - no partnership, farm or co-owners will be allowed. If papers are not submitted by the deadline, but the 4-H'er has the papers at the show, they will be allowed to show, but will NOT be eligible for Champion, Reserve Champion or Trophy. Exhibitors must be prepared to produce the ORIGINAL registration papers or grade ID (VIP) papers for examination when called for by the department superintendent or his/her representative.
