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)

Major Show Entry Nights

Major Show Entry Nights allow a one on one appointment with the agent to answer questions, complete sign up, and payment for upcoming major shows. Appointments are required and can be made by selecting from the below flyers for the major show or major show event that you would like to participate in. Please remember that the purchase of validation tags or birds does not automatically enter an individual into a show.

REMINDER: Contest entries are also due these nights and will require names of all team members and payment for entire team at time of registration.
