NC State Fair Livestock

***Update from NCDA***

We wanted to provide you with an update regarding the 2022 NC State Fair Junior Livestock shows. Exhibitors of Junior market barrows, market lambs, market meat goats, junior breeding gilts, ewes, and does are asked to fill out a request form to receive DNA Kits and tags based off number of entries they wish to nominate. Exhibitors are allowed to nominate up to 6 market animals per species
and 6 breeding animals per species.

Use our online request form. It can be found on the State Extension 4-H Youth Livestock page.

This request is due in by June 1. We will NOT distribute DNA kits and tags until after June 1.

There are videos on how to pull a DNA sample on the 4-H Youth Livestock page. Any of the staff at the NCDA Livestock Marketing Division can also assist in answering questions about how to complete the process.

  • Once exhibitors have completed their sample and filled out the information on the envelop they need to first upload that information into the online nomination platform that will be linked on the State 4-H Youth Livestock website.
  • After that has been completed, they will then drop off their samples at the nearest N.C. Cooperative Extension center.

Also, please note the schedule changes to the State Fair livestock shows from previous years. You can view the schedule in our April newsletter.
At this time all Market Steer Validation has been completed.
