2022 Nomination Information
(Click link to confirm nominations and/or view current information)
All 2022 state livestock nomination information is posted on the "Nomination Information" tab of the KSU Youth Livestock website.
Important: All animals that are nominated for the Kansas Junior Livestock Show and Kansas State Fair are required to be tagged with the Kansas 4-H EID tags in 2022. DNA hair samples in new, official DNA envelopes are also required. Beginning in 2022, we have transitioned to an online nomination system; paper state nomination forms will no longer be accepted. Official DNA Envelopes must be purchased in advance. Visit the "Nomination Information" page for more details.
**Exhibitors must contact their local Extension Office to get their animals tagged and for further details on state livestock nominations.
