Pig Validation

What is Validation?

When you paid for the purchase of your pig, you also paid $10 for validation. The process of validation includes: new eartag, recording ear notches on each pig, and collecting a hair sample.


All pigs must have this eartag to be eligible to show at our county show and Texas major shows.

Paperwork

Students and parents must sign paperwork PRIOR to validation. Please choose one of the times below to sign paperwork.


TONIGHT:

I will be working with lamb/goat students tonight from 6-7. I will also be waiting for chickens to arrive during the 7:00 hour.


FRIDAY:

I will be at the barn from 4:30-7.

Morning of 11/23

CLEAN YOUR PEN SO IT IS PERFECT!


For validation to occur 2-3 people will enter your pen. Just as you do not like to walk in a dirty pen, neither do the validation workers. Your pen should be dry (fresh shavings) & free of all feces.

Validation Date
