Validation & Major Show

Validation & Orders

The Texas 4-H and FFA Livestock Validation Program confirms ownership and ensures that youth exhibitors are actively engaged with their livestock projects. Validation components may include ear tags, tattoo, hair sample, nose prints and/or a Unique Identification Number.

We do NOT validate for the Fort Bend County Fair or Needville Youth Fair.
(See “Other” page for links to those shows for info)
