A BIG Thank you goes out to Jill Harker and Kristie McFatridge for all their hard work as junior advisors! 

The Indiana State Fair is right around the corner!  The 4-H Hereford Steers will be shown on Sunday, August 7th, and the 4-H Hereford Heifers will be shown on Monday, August the 8th.  The open show will take place on Thursday, August 11th at 8:00 am.

Starting in 2016, all steers need registration papers for all shows, including:
Junior National, Preview, State Fair and Beef Congress and must be registered by the American Hereford Association and out of a registered sire and dam. No steer certificates will be accepted, only registration papers. The AHA will still offer traditional steer certificates for those state and regional shows not requiring a registration paper on steers at this time.

  • This rule applies for Indiana Preview Show and Indiana State Fair 4H show for 2016

  • 2016 JNHE Require steers to be DNA tested before April 1
