2020 State Livestock Nomination Information Released
The state livestock nomination season is rapidly approaching! The 2020 materials have been distributed to counties and are posted on the KSU Youth Livestock website, under the “Nomination Information” tab (http://bit.ly/ksunominations). Market Beef nominations will be due on May 1, 2020. All other species, which includes commercial heifers, market swine, commercial gilts, market lambs, commercial ewes, and ALL meat goats, will be due June 15, 2020.
Please remember there is not a registered breeding doe show at either state show, so all meat goats must be nominated to be eligible. The nomination deadlines are firm postmark deadlines. Any nomination envelope or package received must have a visible postmark prior to the deadline, or it will not be accepted. Certified mail is highly encouraged. Families are also encouraged to use the check list provided for each specie to make sure their nominations are complete. Incomplete or incorrect nominations will be returned to the family and cost $20 to correct.
The YQCA certification requirement will also continue for all Kansas State Fair Grand Drive and KJLS exhibitors. For more information, please contact Lexie Hayes (firstname.lastname@example.org or 785-532-1264).
