Animal ID Directions
In order to declare project animals in 4-H, market and non-market animals must be identified and uploaded to 4-HOnline. By identifying their animal online, members are declaring they have ownership of the animal and are the primary caregiver of their animal. If the animal is not housed on their property, members will need to fill out Animal Care and Housing form and submit it to the extension office by June 1 (or upload the form into their Animal IDs).
