Heifer Info and Documents
A few things to look at when considering a heifer:
Every Exhibitor must keep a record on file with the ag science teacher stating the physical address of the SAE’s location during the duration which the animal is Texas State Validated.
Know that it must remain in the county it is validated under unless county paperwork is filed with the county extension agent. Know that when signing the state validation ethics policy you are signing that anyone on the validation committee/ ag science teacher may visit the location with or without notification.
Estimated cost of pen if new materials are used is $250-$300. Breeding cattle projects can be raised in the same type pen, but pastures should be provided for grazing and exercise.
Cost of animal------------$ 1200.00 + 3000.00 +
