Livestock Breed Designation
All changes are due to the Extension Office IN WRITING: June 1st

All market livestock that will be shown at the Coffey County Fair must be tagged during the relative species weigh-in/tagging date in the spring.  At the time of tagging a breed should be designated.  Changes to breed information may be made in writing up until the June 1st deadline.  NO CHANGES may be made to breed designation after that date, and all animals must be pre-entered under the designated breed category on  pre-entry cards.  If your pre-entry card does not match with the breed that was designated by you by the June 1st deadline, then your pre-entry card will not be accepted by the Extension Office until it is corrected.
