A Premise ID is required to exhibit at the Boulder County Fair and Colorado State Fair for livestock animals. Premises identification will provide quick and accurate traceability of livestock and locations in the event of an animal health concern, which will help maintain the health of all Colorado livestock. For this program, a premises is defined as a location or site where livestock are born, handled, housed, managed, marketed, processed, or exhibited. Premises ID is managed by the Colorado Department of Agriculture.
For the 2022-2023 project year, 4-H members with livestock projects (beef, dairy, goat, horse, sheep, swine, poultry, and rabbit) should obtain a Premises ID. It is also required for other livestock shows. If you don’t have a Premises ID, you can obtain one by calling the Colorado Animal ID coordinator at 303-869-9130 or go online to Colorado Location Identification (LID) Registration Form.
4-H Animal Care & Housing Form
All 4-H members with animal projects will be required to have a completed, signed and approved Animal Care and Housing Form for Colorado 4-H Livestock Projects form on file at the Extension Office. This form will be provided in two ways:
- 4-H online – you completed this information when enrolling for those that have their animals at their place of residence
- Complete a hard copy form and submit to the 4-H Office for those that have their animals some place other than their residence. If your animal project is not housed at your place of residence then you will need to go to our 4-H Website, print the Animal Care and Housing form and fill out both sides of that form. This gives us additional information about your specific situation and helps with the approval process. Please give us detailed information or we will send them back for you to adjust your comments. These need to be completed and turned in to the office by April 29th as this is the deadline for Animal IDs
Required Livestock Training – MQA update
All first year members or first year Senior(14yrs or older) participants in a livestock project (including all market, breeding, dairy, poultry, rabbit and cavy, excludes dog and horse) are required to attend an MQA training to be eligible to show or sell at the 2022 Boulder County Fair and Colorado State Fair. This year Boulder County will be hosting an in-person opportunity for members to complete this requirement.
There will be other trainings across the state, as well. Other shows may have requirements to take the trainings more frequently or to take a YQCA national training. It is the youth’s responsibility to know what the shows require. To compete at the Boulder County Fair, youth need to take the MQA training once as a first year member, and once as a 14 year old member or older.
