There will not be a spring  weigh-in for swine in Polk County in 2017.  Animals will still need to be self-identified. the self-identified process will be the same as last year.  Exhibitors will not have to order their own DNA kits.  Swine exhibitors will tag their animals themselves and take DNA samples and mail those samples into the Wisconsin Livestock Identification Consortium (WLIC).  Polk County Quality Meats Tag numbers MUST BE included with the samples submitted for DNA analysis.
