2017 Donor Book


    The Jefferson County 4-H Council set tagging limits within Family Nominations in 2013.  At spring weigh-ins, each 4-H member/family is allowed to weigh-in and tag two additional market animals in addition to the two market animal limit allowed for fair entries in each species.  Member must designate which animals are for their individual fair entry/entries at fair weigh-in, with no changes allowed after that designation.
