State Market Beef Nomination Deadline Approaching
The 2019 state livestock nomination season has arrived! All market beef nominations are due by May 1, 2019. This includes market steers and market heifers. The deadline is a postmark deadline, but families are encouraged to submit their nominations as early as possible. May 1 is a firm, non-negotiable deadline and late nominations will not be accepted.
Nomination information for all species may be found on the KSU youth livestock program website (http://bit.ly/ksunominations). The 2019 forms and information must be used in order for nominations to be accepted. In order to make sure nominations are complete upon initial submission, 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. Please also cross-reference the tag numbers between the DNA envelopes and the specie nomination forms. All checks should be made payable to KJLS. There is a checklist for each species attached as a second page to the 2019 forms; the checklist does not need to be submitted as it is only a reference tool for families. This is also a reminder that a YQCA certificate for each child needs to be attached to the Declaration Form, which means youth nominating market beef need to complete the training by May 1.
We will be having a friendly livestock nomination challenge this year for county bragging rights! The county and appropriate local extension unit who submit the highest percentage of complete nominations will be recognized and rewarded.
