TAG ORDERS FOR MAJOR SHOW GOATS AND LAMBS
If you plan on exhibiting goats or lambs at a Major Show in 2013, you must have them validated. You must order your tags no later than Monday, Aug. 27 and pay for your tags when you place your order. Each validation tag you order will cost $10.00 and checks can be made to: Karnes 4-H Club Fund. You will not validate your lamb or goat under 4-H or FFA, but the Extension is in charge of validation, so you must order your tags through the Extension Office.
