To help speed up the registration process, you are receiving the registration form in advance of
identification (tagging) and weigh-in on December 2nd. Each member weighing in animals is receiving an individual form. Please complete the top part of the form only, and bring to weigh-
ins. Each beef steer will be identified with an electronic RFID ear tag.

Do not sign this form until after your steer/s are weighed, tagged, registered, and you have checked the information for accuracy.

Steers should not be born prior to January 1 of the previous fair year. Animals must be castrated
prior to weigh-ins. No horns will allowed at weigh-ins. Scurs are acceptable. Animals must be
tagged by the official person who is tagging animals with the electronic RFID tag when it leaves
the chute or it will not be considered registered for the 2024 Barron County Junior Livestock
Market Animal project.

If your animal accidentally loses a tag at home, it must be replaced. Try to find the missing tag,
and retain it in a zip lock bag for one of the beef superintendents, Pete Kolpack or Kristin
Hanson. Contact Pete Kolpack at 715.234.2181, extension 5442 or email to have the tag replaced, or you may contact Kristin Hanson and
