Texas 4-H and FFA Livestock Program Ethics Policy


Rule #3 of the Texas 4-H and FFA Livestock Program Ethics Policy states that exhibitors and immediate family/guardians are responsible for providing the primary and continuous daily care of livestock projects throughout the validation period. However, there are certain instances when the livestock may be outside of the direct care of the livestock exhibitor, their family, or their supervising County Extension Agent/Agriculture Science Teacher. These instances and the third-party providing care must be approved as noted in Rule #3. This form is to serve as an approval process for state validated livestock projects requesting to be outside of the care of the above listed parties for certain livestock management practices. For more information about Rule #3 or if this form is applicable for your situation, please review the Texas 4-H and FFA Livestock Program Ethics Policy: https://texasyouthlivestock.com/.
