Young swine enthusiasts are invited to attend Junior Swine Producer Day hosted by the Kansas State University Youth Livestock Program, K-State Research & Extension, and the K-State Department of Animal Sciences and Industry on Sat., March 9.
The event will be hosted in Weber Arena on the Kansas State University campus in Manhattan. This one-day educational opportunity for youth, parents, project leaders, agents and other adults will increase their knowledge about youth livestock production and management. All ages are welcome, but all attendees must register.
The program will offer an instructor-led training for attendees to earn their Youth for the Quality Care of Animals (YQCA) certification. YQCA is a national youth livestock quality assurance program that is in its second year. All exhibitors planning to participate in the Kansas State Fair Grand Drive and/or Kansas Junior Livestock Show in 2019 will be required to complete YQCA certification to be eligible to show.
The cost for each junior day is $15 per person for those who register by the early deadline, and $20 per person for those who register after the deadline. Register at bit.ly/ksuasiregister. Early registration for Junior Swine Producer Day is Feb. 15. More information is available at www.youthlivestock.ksu.edu.
