Junior Swine Producer Day is quickly approaching and 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.

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.

An optional instructor-led YQCA session will also be held at the conclusion of the 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. The $15.00 junior swine producer day registration fee does not include the YQCA session; families will need to sign up through the YQCA site and pay the $3.00 separately.
