Kansas Junior Beef Producer Day Registration Open

Submitted by Lexie Hayes

Junior Beef Producer Day is scheduled for Saturday, February 29, 2020, in Weber Arena on the K-State campus in Manhattan. This one-day educational event is devoted to the selection and management of youth beef projects. All ages and knowledge levels are invited! K-State faculty members, graduate students, livestock judging team members, and guest speakers will cover topics including selection, nutrition and feeding, meat science and alternative proteins, grooming and clipping, low stress cattle handling, the state livestock nomination process, herd health, reproduction, and showmanship. An optional instructor-led YQCA training will also be held at the conclusion of the program.

The cost for junior beef producer day is $15 per person, if registration is submitted by February 7, 2020, or $20 per person after the deadline. All attendees, including youth and adults, must register. All participants who sign up by February 7 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 KSU Youth Livestock Program. Those who plan to attend the YQCA certification will need to register separately for that session through www.yqca.org. Detailed instructions will be emailed to those families who indicate they plan to attend YQCA on their junior day registration materials.
