The Chase County 4-H market beef weigh-in is set for Saturday, Jan. 30, from 9 to 11 a.m. in Imperial at Imperial Livestock Auction Market.  
All Chase County 4-H and FFA members planning to exhibit market heifers or market steers in a 4-H show this year are required to weigh-in, tag and identify their projects at this time.
Any youth planning to exhibit at the Nebraska State Fair or Ak-Sar-Ben Livestock Exposition will also be required to collect hair samples for DNA purposes.  There will be a $6 handling fee for each animal identified to exhibit at these shows.
Those who cannot make it to the market beef weigh-in in Imperial, need to make arrangements to weigh, tag and identify at one of the other beef weigh-ins within the Southwest Four Counties.  Contact Kimberly Cook, Extension Educator at the UNL Extension Office to make those arrangements.
