2021 Market Beef Identification


As of Wednesday, December 17, the Director of OSU Extension is mandating all of its county offices to be closed to the public from Monday, December 21 through Friday, January 15, with all employees working 100% remotely. 

Here are your options to meet the January 11 Deadline: 

  1. Make an appointment to pick up tags/tagger before the office closes on December 17 or after the office reopens (No guarantee on date).

  2. Call the office by 4pm December 17 to have tags/tagger left in drop box for pick up at a later time/date.  They will be in a bag with your name.  Please make sure you take yours.

  3. Call one of the beef committee members (Brian, Matt, or Jim) at the numbers listed on the Instruction form (linked below) and arrange pick up of tags/tagger from them.  They should have them by December 18.   

The Jr. Fair Livestock Committee has decided to implement virtual tag in/ identification for market beef exhibitors for 2021.  This was done last year with hogs, lambs, and goats.

This is for Market Beef only.  Dairy feeders will have identification later in the spring.

Please refer to the Market Beef Identification Instructions to assist you with this process.
