Jr. Meat Goat Producer Day_2019

Kansas Junior Meat Goat Producer Day will be hosted on Saturday, March 30, 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 meat goat projects. All ages and knowledge levels are invited! K-State faculty members, graduate students, and guest speakers will cover topics including selection, meat science, nutrition, the state nomination process, herd health, reproduction, health and wellness, facilities and equipment, 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 Meat Goat Producer Day is $15/person, if registration is submitted by March 11, 2019, or $20/person after the early deadline. All attendees, including youth and adults, must register. All participants who sign up by Mach 11 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 March. For more information, contact Lexie Hayes at adhayes@ksu.edu.

The KSU Sheep & Meat Goat Center will also be hosting their annual sale following the junior day program. They are separate events, but the schedule will allow families who would like to attend both events to do so.
