New Earlier Intent Form Date for Market Steers for Fryeburg Fair 2019

4-H’ers raising a steer for the 2019 market steer show at Fryeburg Fair need to send in an Intent to Participate Form by November 1, 2018.

The intent form will advise the State 4-H Office which steers need to be tagged. Once we receive your intent form you will be contacted by a staff person from the Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry to make an appointment for someone to come to your barn and tag your project animal. As always Fryeburg Market Steers must be owned and in possession by the 4-Her by January 1. But we understand that many of you will have your market steers before January 1 so we are hoping to tag more of the project animals before the winter travel becomes more difficult.

We are grateful for the staff from the Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation, and Forestry for helping us with the tagging and we are hoping the earlier intent form date will allow for safer travel during the winter months. You can also enroll or re-enroll as a 4-H member when you send your Intent to Participate form to your county office.

We appreciate you completing this form as early as possible and are encouraging everyone to help spread the word about the new earlier date for the intent form. If you have specific questions please contact your local UMaine Extension county office.
