Market steer, market heifer tag-in

Submitted story

Highland County Junior Fair exhibitors planning to take a market steer or market heifer to the 2019 Highland County Fair are reminded that tag-in and weigh-in will be Saturday, Dec. 1 from 8-10 a.m. at the Union Stockyards in Hillsboro.

This will be the only day market steers and market heifers can be tagged.

Hair samples will be taken for DNA testing on both steers and heifers. County bred and born exhibitors will need birth date of steers/heifers and the breeder’s name. Don’t forget that market heifers will be pregnancy checked before the fair. You will be allowed to tag in a total of four market animals in any combination of market steer and market heifer, show two and sell one.

Tags cost $2 per animal. Bring correct change. In case of extremely bad weather, listen to Buckeye Country after 6 a.m. the day of the weigh-in as well as checking the Jr. Fair Board Facebook page. Call the Union Stockyards at 937-393-1958 or Jana Holbrook at 937-402-6219 after 7 a.m. if you have any questions on Saturday, Dec. 1.
