4-H SWINE TAG ORDERS

ATTENTION 4-H SWINE EXHIBITORS!!

Your Travis County 4-H Swine Tag Orders are due to the Extension office by THIS THURSDAY, the 16th by 5:00 pm!
If you have not mailed yet, it will NOT get here in time, so please plan to bring by the office.
Also, please remember that our office is closed to the public so you will need to put your entry form and payment in an envelope and label "ATTN: MIKAYLA HERRON" and put it through our mail slot at the front door (silver cut out on left hand side of door).
Also, I will ALWAYS make copies and email you receipts for your records and to let you know I received it, if it was dropped off.
If you have already mailed it and have not let me know, please do so, so I know who to be on the lookout for or who to reach out to if I do not receive them in time.

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to email me at mikayla.herron@ag.tamu.edu
