It’s time to order state swine tags. 4-H members can contact the County Extension office and let us know how many validation tags you will need for the 2021-2022 Texas State Swine Validation Programs. Validation fees will cost $15.00/tag. Payment will be due at time of ordering. There will not be an option for county-only tags; ALL pigs will be required to have a state validation tag.

Important Validation Information

  • All gilts (purebred and cross) must be validated
  • Registration papers must be uploaded for all major shows (Grandstand, The Elite, San Antonio, San Angelo and Houston)
  • State validation tags must be in the ear prior to entering the holding/sift pen
  • Any pig (barrow or gilt) entering the holding/sift pen without a state validation tag will be disqualified and sent to the floor truck
  • Replacement tags purchased at the shows will be $25.00
