The 2023 Lancaster County 4-H/FFA Livestock Checklist is online at https://lancaster.unl.edu/4h/fair/2023/4H-Livestock-Checklist-23.pdf and available at the Extension office. This 2-page handout lists deadlines, events and identification requirements for showing at the Lancaster County Super Fair and State Fair, as well as information about the Youth for the Quality Care of Animals requirements.

New in 2023 for State Fair: each livestock project must have a DNA envelope submitted and a $7 nomination paid on Show Stock Manager by June 15. This includes feeder calves, and all market and breeding livestock for ALL SPECIES (excluding rabbits and poultry). With this update, livestock animals will automatically be eligible for both breeding and market.
