There will be no Steer Weigh-In for 2024. Instead, 2024 market beef/dairy steer exhibitors are required to pick up EID Tags from the Extension office. You can pick up tags from November 1, 2023 - December 31, 2023 in our office. Please complete an ID Form, take photos of tagged animal, and send photos along with the form back to the Extension office. Deadline for materials is January 5, 2024. All materials must be sent to hoffman.1458@osu.edu by deadline.

If your steer already has an EID Tag, simply complete the ID Form and submit pictures of your steer by the deadline. The form includes DETAILED instructions about what photos are needed and how to submit them to the office. ID Forms completed after January 5 will be assessed a $10 late fee and could be ineligible for fair competition.

• Beef Breeding: if you are planning to bring beef breeding to the junior fair, you must enroll in the beef breeding 4-H project and enter the animal to 4-H Online by April 17th deadline and Fair Entry June 7.
