ODA has clarified their rules for ownership and leasing of Breeding and Dairy Animals. If you are enrolled in a breeding animal or dairy project, you were mailed a letter with the following information. If you do not own the breeding animal you are planning to show, then a lease must be completed and returned the OSU Extension Office by June 1, 2023.
Read the rules here: Ohio Youth Livestock Exhibition Rules 4.17.23
If you need to complete a lease, all leases are due to OSU Extension by June 1:
- Breeding Animal Lease (for goats, sheep, beef) Animal Lease – Breeding Animal 12.20.21 (002)
- Dairy Lease (for dairy calves, heifers, cows) Animal Lease – Dairy 12.20.21
Just to clarify, leases are not needed for market animals as ALL market animals must be fully owned by the exhibitor or household. This leasing information is only for members that do not own their breeding animals.
