Kansas Junior Sheep Producer Day Registration Open

Submitted by Lexie Hayes

Junior Sheep Producer Day will be hosted on Saturday, March 14, 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 sheep projects. All ages and knowledge levels are invited! K-State faculty members, graduate students, wool judging team members, and guest speakers will cover topics including selection, nutrition, the state nomination process, flock management, herd health, facilities and equipment, wool judging, clipping, and showmanship. An optional instructor-led YQCA training will also be held at the conclusion of the program.

The cost for junior sheep producer day is $15 per person, if registration is submitted by February 21, 2020, or $20 per person after the early deadline. All attendees, including youth and adults, must register. All participants who sign up February 21 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.
