Big Reminders!
• Livestock/Contest Entry Deadlines: The Milam County 4-H Major Show Entry Deadline is November 9th! If you see December 1st in the updates, that is a deadline for Milam County 4-H to get your entries submitted. Typically all entry forms are posted somewhere around the 2nd week in October. That seems to be the magic date, but we will have them made available as soon as they are released.
• Milam County 4-H Major Show Entry Night: Tuesday, November 9th 2021. At the Extension Office from 4:00pm to 6:00pm. Mandatory for New and 1st year Exhibitors.

Optional for all other exhibitors.
• State Fair: Sheep & Goat shows again will be separate this year this includes move in and release. There will be 3 waves of market barrows rather than 2 as it was in the past. Fat steers will show before prospect steers and the SFT Youth Livestock Auction will separate the two shows.
• HOT: The previously named Jr. Show is now the Scholarship and the previously named Jackpot Show is now the Premium Show. Special Top 5 Overall payout for each species in both shows.

Quality Counts

The newly updated Quality Counts system is now available to 4-H livestock exhibitors. The new curriculum has been designed to better equip our youth livestock exhibitors with the most relevant and timely information related to the livestock project area. Focused on quality assurance and character education, Quality Counts is designed to teach young people the importance of displaying good character in carrying out livestock projects, and in every aspect of their lives.

**There is a very important one-pager attached with detailed instructions of how students should enroll/login to the course.

ALL EXHIBITORS will need to re-certify under the new system if you plan to show a livestock project at any Major livestock show in Texas.
