4-H and FFA youth interested in exhibiting a market beef animal at the 2024 Tuscarawas County Fair will need to attend market beef tag-in December 9 from 9:00 a.m. to noon in the Main Show Arena at the Tuscarawas County Fairgrounds. There is no make-up date. No pre-registration is needed. More detailed information can be found at https://go.osu.edu/tuscanimalsciences.
The Ohio State Fair Requires all market beef entered in the 2024 Ohio State Fair to have individual DNA samples taken from each animal that may potentially be entered. These DNA samples must be in the possession of the Ohio State Fair by January 15, 2024 (this is not a postmark date). DNA Sample Kits will be available at beef tag-in for those interested in going to the State Fair. Please contact Andi Hershey at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions pertaining to the DNA sampling process. A Tuscarawas County Extension professional will need to sign the collection envelope (FFA advisor will sign for FFA members) and 4-H members are responsible for mailing sample(s) to the Ohio State Fair.
