Record Books

RECORD BOOKS RULES (taken from General Rules)

  1. All exhibitors showing an animal must keep and complete either the “Market Animal” or “Animal” Southeastern Youth Fair Record Book. These books will be available on our website. If you have trouble downloading them, please contact our office, your 4-H Leader or FFA Advisor.
  2. A record book is required for each animal show the exhibitor is entered in. It is to be done by the exhibitor and not an adult. Only one record book may be submitted per show. If more than one is submitted by the exhibitor, no book for that exhibitor will be judged for that show.
  3. Beginning and end dates for animal and market animal projects will be posted on the record book page of our website.
  4. ALL MARKET ANIMAL (Goat, Lamb, Steer, Swine) Record Books must be complete, including ALL required signatures and turned in to the SEYF OFFICE between Monday, February 8th – Friday, February 12th. A copy of your buyer letter and a copy of your proposed thank you letter is required to be included in your completed Market Animal Record Book. The only exception is the “Project Summary” page in the Market Animal book. Please remove that page and bring it to the final weigh-in. You can then complete the information and submit that page at the designated time and location.
  5. COMPLETED Animal (Beef Heifer, Chicken, Dog, Meat & Dairy Goat, Horse, Breed Lamb, Rabbit) Record Books are due in the SEYF Office February 8-12th, 2021.
  6. All pages to the record book must be secured on the bind. Books must be bound by 3 staples, side lock or slide grip folder, or duo-tag folder. No paperclips, three ring binders, spiral, or plastic spiral binding.
  7. IF YOUR ANIMAL DOES NOT MAKE THE SHOW you may still submit your completed record book for judging.
  8. All record books will be judged by the same standards
  • Completeness and Neatness: 20 points
