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/.

Market Lamb Classification Guidelines

The guidelines will be implemented on the state-level at the 2020 State Fair of Texas and Heart of Texas Fair.

Please know, there will also be an educational resource to be paired with the guidelines to increase accuracy and understanding of lamb classification. The resource, with actual pictures of lambs, will be released in the coming weeks, but we wanted to get the current guidelines to you for your reference and use. See the link below.
