Kansas Junior Producer Days

By Lexie Hayes

The Kansas Junior Producer Days will be held in March of 2018 in Weber Hall of the Kansas State University campus. Since 2018 is an even year, we will host a beef day and sheep day. These events are one-day educational programs for youth, parents, project leaders, and agents to learn about selecting and managing a youth livestock project. For both days, tentative topics include selection, nutrition, reproduction, meat science, and health. There will also be an opportunity to experience Youth for the Quality Care of Animals, which is a new, national, multi-specie livestock quality assurance program.

Junior Sheep Producer Day is scheduled for Saturday, March 17, 2018, and Junior Beef Producer Day is scheduled for Saturday, March 24, 2018. Registration information will be released in December, so watch the KSU Youth Livestock Program Facebook page and website for further details!
