Wisconsin State Fair Livestock ID Deadlines Approaching
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 02/07/2017
Youth interested in showing market beef, sheep, swine or breeding stock at the 2017 Wisconsin State Fair Junior Show will need to have their animal projects DNA and RFID identified by the State Fair eligibility deadlines. This system allows animals which are
DNA/RFID identified through the Wisconsin Livestock Identification Consortium County and State Fair program to meet fair competition requirements.
The deadline for beef exhibitors is February 13. For students showing sheep and swine animals, they must submit their entries by May 8.
State Fair officials say DNA/RFID tag identification are only available by going to the WLIC website at www.wiid.org. The cost is $11 per animal identified.
The 2017 Wisconsin State Fair will be held August 3-13 near Milwaukee.
