Livestock Program

State Livestock Shows

  • Utah Junior Livestock Association Entry Form pdf format
    • All junior livestock shows supported by the Utah State Junior Livestock Association require that animal projects be tagged with a permanent, tamper-proof tag. The association has uniform tags to be used throughout the state. These tags identify specific animal projects, help track ownership, and are required to participate in any state show. FFA advisors, 4-H agents or tagging committees ensure animals are tagged and exhibitors are verified and in good standing.
    • All exhibitors must be verified as Utah 4-H or FFA members in good standing to compete. Tag + Verification = Eligibility
    • Animals must be tagged 100 days before the weigh-in of a show for beef (steers and market heifers), and 60 days for sheep, goats, and hogs
    • Contact our office to get your tags. 435-893-0470 or 435-893-0478
    • Tag Deadlines are found on this page: https://utahjuniorlivestock.com/shows-1 (scroll to bottom)

4-H Portfolio Information

The portfolio style has recently changed to a cover letter and resume. The link below contains full details.

A portfolio is an organized collection of a person's progress, achievements, contributions, and efforts that demonstrate accomplishments, size and growth over time.  4-H Portfolios contain important records that can be utilized in applying for scholarships and future employment.  Portfolios set the stage for organization, record keeping and leadership.
