Tag in for Bi-County and NM State Fair

With current restrictions on 4-H Agents and Agriculture Education Teachers,below is the recommended procedures for tagging animals for fairs this year, 2020 only established in cooperation by the NM Cooperative Extension Service and the NM Livestock Board.

For 2020 ONLY we will utilize a mail-out/self-tag system. All Families will need to send Kathy (for McKinley) kalander@nmsu.edu and Chase (for Cibola) chelkins@nmsu.edu an email with the number of livestock you would like tagged in each species with your family name. We will be mailing your tags to you, for you to tag your own animals this year. Cattle exhibitors will also need to brand their own animals this year. If you haven’t branded your steers yet please reach and make arrangements to check out the branding iron. If you don’t have taggers to tag your animals please let us know when you email us back and we will make arrangements for that also.

When you do your online entries for Bi-County Fair you will be required to upload a picture of the animal with the ear tag already in their ear. 

Brand Inspections and hauling papers: You will need to contact the brand inspector yourself to get hauling papers and inspections done. Byron Murphy can be reached at (505) 362-3923. This has to be done by June 30th.

No DNA is required for the NM State Fair this year only. No Tattoos are required in Sheep and Goats for this year


If you have misplaced the instruction mailed to you along with your tags they are below Bi-County Fair Tagging Process.
