Up-To-Date Animal Record Book Checklist

Use these checklists to double check that your animal record book is up-to-date before fair. These are to be a reference for members, parents and leaders and are not intended as a record book judging tool. See Record Book Score Sheets for record book judging criteria.

Record Book Score Sheets

These score sheets are provided by Colorado 4-H and will be used to judge livestock, horse, dog, and general project record books.


Lease-A-Animal Records

4-H members participating in the Lease-A-Animal project will NOT use the livestock record book. Instead there are records specifically for these members. You can download the PDF (to print and write on) or the Excel (to fill out on the computer) version below.

Keeping ahead of COVID-19

This rapidly evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) has imposed an unsettling, fluid situation upon our community and its businesses.
