Fall 2021 Major Show Validation Orders

2021 State Fair of TX-Fall Validation Orders

 

Each species has a separate order form.

Place your orders for all tags through the correct form.

If you have already placed an order and need to add tags, submit another order for what you need to add. You can add tags, not remove any already ordered.

If you have an outstanding validation order balance, your may not be eligible to order tags for your Chapter.

 

*Your Chapter will be responsible for what is ordered through your online form, no exceptions. 

Filtering through emails requesting to add/remove/change in any way your order can become quite time consuming.
If something should be missed based off of an “I sent you an email” you are responsible for what your online submitted order reflects.

Steer Validation

*2021 Steer Validation Change:

Texas Youth Livestock and Agriculture will be eliminating steer nose prints for the 2021-2022 steer validation season. This change is a positive step in the directions of enhanced accuracy and efficiency for steer validation. This change has been vetted and approved by the TCAAA Animal Industries Committee, the ATAT Major Livestock Show Advisory Committee, and our major livestock show partners.

The exclusion of nose prints from the validation process will allow for more in-depth and exact information related to confirming steer identity by relying largely on DNA tests. In previous years, we have run DNA comparisons on about 150-160 steers per year. Our current plan is to increase this testing volume to about 430 DNA comparisons each year. This more-than-double increase will allow for a more precise comparison for steer validation. Efficiency will also be increased at the time of validation as you all will not have to do the sometimes tedious and time-consuming process of taking nose prints. Due to increased DNA comparisons and associated costs, the price of steer validation will increase
