Those wanting to exhibit a lamb or goat at a major livestock show (i.e. San Antonio, Austin or Houston), must place their tag orders by Aug. 24 by calling the Extension Office.
The cost of the tag this year is $8. Validation will take place in October. Those needing to state validate a project, do not need to attend the December County Tag-In.
All junior commercial entries will be tagged on Saturday, Sept. 15 from 8 to 10 a.m. at the Goliad Fair Barns.
Exhibitors must bring with them a statement signed by the breeder showing the heifer’s birthdate.
Special accommodations may be made with the chairman, county extension agent, and agriculture science teacher’s approval. Those who have an appointment to have their heifer project calf hood vaccinated before this date, can contact the Extension Office and a representative can meet them at the clinic and place the tag at that time.
For information, call Rodney Butler at Beeville Livestock at 645-5002.
Those planning to show a steer at the Goliad County Show and did not attend the major show validation in June, must attend the county validation Saturday, Sept. 15 at the Goliad Fair Barns from 8 to 10 a.m.
Those who have a 2012-13 major show tag in their steer’s ear are already eligible to exhibit at the Goliad County Fair.
