Additional Rules and Guidelines
About_Record_Keeping.pdf All 4-H market animal project members must complete a record book for their 4-H project every year. The type of records you keep will depend on the kind of 4-H project you have. The record book is a guideline for you. If you would like an electronic version in Word let the office know and one can be emailed to you.
Below you will find the various Market Livestock notebooks for the Beef, Swine and Lamb projects. These notebooks must be completed by each member enrolled in the specific projects. Notebooks must be presented to the weigh-in assistant on Entry Day at the Oceana County Fair at the time your animal is being weighed.
Make sure that your notebook is the correct one; the previous year’s notebook will not be accepted at the fair. Check your dates! All of the notebooks also need the club meeting/non-club point list attached to the end of it. Youth 5-7 years-old do not need to do the non-club point page.
