Tag in for Bi-County and NM State Fair

There are changes for the tag in process this year.  All animals that are going to be shown - this includes breeding animals and dairy goats must come to tag in to be tagged.  Dairy goat and pygmy goats that aren't tagged in the ears must have their collar with them and it will be tagged.

We are also changing the time of tag in to 8 am to 10 am if you are inline at 10 am you are good.
