Kansas Junior Swine Producer Day

The Kansas Junior Swine Producer Day is scheduled for Saturday, March 9, 2019 in Weber Arena on the K-State campus in Manhattan. This one-day educational event is devoted to the selection and management of youth swine projects. All ages and knowledge levels are invited! K-State faculty members, graduate students, and guest speakers will cover topics including selection, meat science, ear notching, breeds, the state nomination process, herd health, nutrition, and showmanship. An optional instructor-led YQCA session will also be held at the conclusion of the program (approx. 2:30pm).

The cost for Junior Swine Producer Day is $15/person, if registration is submitted by February 15, 2019, or $20/person after the early deadline. All attendees, including youth and adults, must register. All participants who sign up by February 15 will also receive a t-shirt. Families may register online at http://bit.ly/ksuasiregister, or by downloading the flyer (http://bit.ly/ksujrproducerdays), completing the bottom portion of the flyer and mailing it, with payment, to the K-State Youth Livestock Program. Those who indicate they would like to participate in the optional YQCA certification will receive additional details and instructions via email in late February.
