The Wise County Validation Committee has set the date for state steer validation.
It will be 8 a.m. to noon and 4:30 to 6 p.m. Thursday, June 19, at the Wise County Fairgrounds. Note that this is a change from previous years. All 4-H and FFA members planning to enter a steer in a major livestock show in Texas must have them validated.
Validation for State Fair sheep, goats and swine is 4 to 6 p.m. Thursday, June 26, at the Wise County Fairgrounds. Anyone who plans to enter a sheep, goat or hog at the State Fair of Texas is required to have it validated on that date.
For information, call the Extension office at 940-627-3341.
