All junior livestock shows supported by the Utah State Junior Livestock Association require that animal projects be tagged with a permanent, tamper-proof tag. The association has uniform tags to be used throughout the state. These tags identify specific animal projects, help track ownership, and are required to participate in any state show. Be aware that some county shows will be using the uniform tag and some will not. It is the exhibitors responsibility to make sure they have the proper steer, hog, sheep, or goat tag for the show they plan to attend. FFA advisors, 4-H agents or tagging committees ensure animals are tagged and exhibitors are verified and in good standing.
All Utah Junior Livestock Association tags are being supplied by IFA. Please make sure that you use the proper tag per species to avoid issues at the show.
4-H staff, FFA advisers, and county livestock boards should contact Lisa Olsen, Association Secretary (ASAP) to request the amount of tags your county or chapter will need. Additional tags can be requested throughout the year. Exhibitors and 4-H leaders will not be requesting their own tags. Please assist in making sure animals are tagged in accordance with the ownership deadlines.
Tags will be available for pick up at an IFA near you. Allow 2 weeks from time of order for tags to arrive. You do need a Y-Tex Tamper Proof tagger for tamper proof tags. Do not try and use any other tagger as you will destroy the tag or they simply will not fit.
2024 Tags are blue. If you have blue tags with Utah Junior Livestock Association on them from 3 years ago those tags can be used in 2024.
