State Market Beef Nomination Deadline Approaching
The 2018 state livestock nomination season has arrived! All market beef nominations are due by May 1, 2018. This includes market steers and market heifers. The deadline is a postmark deadline, so families are encouraged to submit their nominations as early as possible to avoid missing the deadline.
Nomination information for all species may be found on the K-State youth livestock program website (www.youthlivestock.ksu.edu). In order to make sure nominations are complete upon initial submission, families need to double check that all fields of the declaration form and nomination form(s) are complete, as well as the forms and DNA envelopes being signed by all parties. Everyone is also encouraged to cross-reference the tag numbers between the DNA envelopes and the specie nomination forms. There is a checklist for each species attached as a second page to the 2018 forms; the checklist does not need to be submitted as it is only a reference tool for families. The Rookie Guide is also a great resource for families who are new to the state livestock nomination process.
