Subject: State Market Goat & Lamb Entry Deadline July 10.


Reminder:

 

The entry deadline dated for State Market Lambs and Goats is JULY 10.

That is only three weeks away.

 

Our last day to ship tags is July 1.  That is two weeks from today.  If you do not have your lamb and goat tags, the order form is at:

 

http://georgia4h.org/livestock/2011-2012%20Tag%20Order%20Form.pdf

 

Lamb tags are red and Goat tags are yellow.  You may use red and yellow tags left over from last year.

 

On a different topic:

The Georgia National Fair requires you to use state ear tags for market hogs in October.  You may use orange tags left from last year.  If you have any purple tags left from the year before last, you may also use those.  Just put a P in front of the number when you enter.  For example: P1234.  Please save yourself a little money and use up any leftover hog tags you have first.
