    The first opportunity will be to serve on the Grayson County Livestock Validation Committee. This committee will assist with the validation process in June and November.

    The second opportunity will be to serve on the Grayson County 4-H Project Visit Taskforce. The taskforce will assist the 4-H Youth Development Agent in conducting 4-H Livestock project visits during the year.

    The third opportunity will be serve on the Grayson County 4-H Livestock Project Coalition.

This group will meet a minimum of 4 times per year and host at least one educational event.

    Any parent interested in serving on these three leadership groups can contact Dr. Tamra McGaughy at tdmcgaughy@ag.tamu.edu for further details

  • Exhibitors must continuously own and personally feed and care for their animal(s) throughout the entire feeding period. The feeding period begins with the species validation date through exhibition at all shows (exhibitors must provide continuous care for breeding heifers and sheep throughout the animal’s eligibility to show).

    By acknowledging this document, the exhibitor and parent/guardian, recognize his/her responsibilities for the feeding and care of livestock projects throughout the feeding period and hereby authorizes the State Validation Coordinator, supervising Agricultural Science Teacher /County Extension Agent and the “Species Specific County Level State Validation Committee” the right to inspect your livestock project(s) at any time during the feeding period with or without prior notice. Any exhibitor in violation of the feeding/care rule is subject to disqualification.

    Animals validated for major shows may also be exhibited at other shows. Be advised, however, that if any validated animal is exhibited and SOLD at any other show, the animal will be ineligible to show at any subsequent major show. If ownership changes, regardless of method or length of time, that chain of animal ownership is considered broken.

  • Payment for 2020 State Fair of Texas validation tags must be received on or before Wednesday, April 15, 2020.

    Payment should be made to the Youth Advisory Board
