The AKSARBEN Stock Show, currently the largest 4-H Stock Show in the United States, is a regional show open to 4-H members from Colorado, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wyoming.
For your assistance, a County Office Handbook can be downloaded below to ease the entry process for County Offices and exhibitors. Additional entry information and forms will be provided in July.

New for 2017:
Iowa 4-H exhibitors will follow a separate set of animal nomination and retinal image verification processes as a pilot project for 2017. This will involve all Iowa market beef, market sheep and market goat nominations for 2017. Please refer to the Iowa 4-H Livestock ID page for details, http://www.extension.iastate.edu/4h/page/livestock-id. Iowa market hog, feeder calf and breeding heifer nominations will be the same as all other states’ nomination process.

Swine Identification: The official identification for market swine nominations can be either EID tags or Ear notches.
