Lamb and goat tag-in for county and major stock shows is Monday, Oct. 16, 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., at the Expo Building in Mineral Wells.
4-H or FFA members who wish to show lambs or goats at the county or state level must have their animals at the Expo building on this day for validation. Members of the Palo Pinto County Livestock Association will be collecting entry fees for the county livestock show that is scheduled for Jan. 10-13.
Entries for the county stock show are $20 each. Exhibitors who do not bring their animal to tag-in will not be eligible to show unless they appeal to a board of PPCLA members.
Also, exhibitors must be active 4-H or FFA members by Dec. 15 to be eligible to participate in the county stock show. Active membership status means that they have enrolled for the year and their membership dues have been paid.
Lamb and goat state validation tags for Fort Worth, San Antonio, Houston, Austin, or San Angelo stock shows have already been ordered. If you have not paid for the tags you ordered, the payment will be due at tag-in. Late tags for these major stock shows can be ordered up to Friday, Oct. 13, and cost $25 each.
If you have any questions or need to order a late tag for a major show, call the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension office in Palo Pinto at 940-659-1228.
The Palo Pinto County Livestock Association will offer a broiler division at the county show again this year. 4-H & FFA members who wish to participate in this project will need to be at the Expo Building in Mineral Wells on Monday, Oct. 16, between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. to order their chicks and pay entry fees for the county show. The cost for 25 chicks $41 and the county entry fee is $20. If you have further questions, contact the Palo Pinto County Extension Office.
