4-H and FFA Exhibitor Information

GUIDE FOR LIVESTOCK EXHIBITORS

Before entering any New Mexico county or state fair, all in-state junior livestock (cattle, sheep, goats and swine) to be shown must have application of an approved NM Youth Exhibitor Fair Tag by an Extension Agent, FFA Advisor or designated Fair personnel and have a New Mexico Livestock Board (NMLB) Form 1 Inspection. NMLB personnel will prepare the Form 1 Inspection for the Show Season at the time of Youth Exhibitor Fair Tag application in the project animal. The Form 1 Inspection Form will serve as a form of ownership for the junior livestock exhibitor.
