All youth intending to exhibit swine or feeder calves at Ak-Sar-Ben 4-H Livestock Exposition in Omaha, Nebraska in September must have DNA samples collected by June 15th. Kati Peiffer, 4-H/Youth Coordinator says DNA samples must be collected by an Extension staff member. She says nominating through the Iowa State Fair process is not acceptable for Ak-Sar-Ben. An additional sample must be collected. Contact the Washington County Extension Office, 319-653-4811 to schedule a time for your samples to be collected.
