Information, Tips, and Deadlines for entering Animals into 4-H Online

  • Deadlines for 4-Hers to have animals entered by are the possession/validations dates already established for this year for each respective type and specie. The only exception is Market Steers; they will have until Nov. 1st to enter them in.
  • Agents are allowed to enter and approve animal entries until Dec. 31st.
  • Registration papers and Dairy Lease Affidavits are to be uploaded by the Agent when approving the entry. This allows the agent to cross-check data entered for any corrections that need to be made. Please do not approve the entry until you have the registration ready to be uploaded.
  • Animals requiring validations should only be approved after agents have receive the validation envelope for the respective animal.
  • 4-H Online is not a tailor-made program and as such certain form fields had to be adapted. There are descriptions specifying what is needed in each field, but sometimes these descriptions are in smaller print and may not always be easily read. The list of these changes are as follows:
    • Home Raised is for Louisiana Bred. Select “Yes” if the animal is LA Bred.
    • License Number is for the Louisiana Bred Tag Number.
  • When entering Exhibition Poultry, the fields are as follows:
    • Tag would be the leg band number
    • Colors and Markings is the Variety/Color (i.e. – white, blue, barred, buff, etc.)
    • Type of Poultry is whether the bird is Standard or Bantam.
  • Broilers are not in the system yet but will be added in due time.
