Manistee County 4-H Show & Market Record Books

4-H Show and Market Books are a requirement in the Manistee County 4-H Program. They are an educational tool for youth raising Livestock that teach the importance of good record-keeping, tracking feed and supplement costs, weight gain tracking, and how expenses relate to their final Auction or market price.

Currently we use a generic, all species book for Manistee County 4-H.

 

These books must be completed by the end of Fair Week and submitted to the Manistee County 4-H Livestock Council so they can be judged by the corresponding Livestock Judge, be graded and have educational comments made by the Judge and be awarded a Placing. Placings are A (blue), B (red), or C (white) and are determined using the Danish System of Judging.

You can download a copy of your required 4-H Record Book below. All Record Books are Fillable PDFs.
