Iowa Exhibitors
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.
