State Market Beef Nominations Due May 1
The 2021 state livestock nomination season has arrived! Market beef nominations are due by May 1, 2021. 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. Nomination information for all species may be found on the KSU Youth Livestock Program website (http://bit.ly/ksunominations). The updated 2021 forms must be used. Previous versions of the forms will not be accepted. The current forms have "February 2021" in the footer. In order to make sure nominations are complete upon initial submission, families should 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 2021 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, as that requirement will continue for both shows into the foreseeable future. For more information, contact Lexie Hayes via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or (785)532-1264.
