Swine Weigh-In  

Initial swine weigh-in will NOT be held this year at Latah County Fairgrounds to prevent the further spread of Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea virus (PEDv).   More information about swine weigh-in and how your animal will be tagged will be provided to members  as soon as it it available.   Please check Latah County’s website  or talk to your leader.

To learn more about PEDv,  visit

Good information  offered by the National Pork Board and targeted to youth.

Below is the pig tag information provided to me from leaders and members.  Please find your name and double check the spelling of your name, your club information, age division and most important the tag number of your animal.  Call the extension office with any errors.  There are several duplicate ear tags, so double check your animal’s tag.  Thanks, Latah County 4-H

The Western States Lowline Association is sponsoring an essay contest in which the top entry will receive a half-blood Lowline steer.  Recognizing our current prices for project steers, this provides another alternative that youth might want to consider.  If you can share this information with your respective 4-H clubs and FFA chapters, that would be appreciated.  Complete contest rules can be found on the attached flyer.
