Kansas Junior Swine Producer Day and Kansas Junior Meat Goat Producer Day

Registration is now open for Kansas Junior Swine Producer Day and Kansas Junior Meat Goat Producer Day!

The K-State Youth Livestock Program, K-State Research & Extension, and the K-State Department of Animal Science and Industry will be hosting two junior producer days in the spring of 2017. We invite you to participate in Junior Swine Producer Day and Junior Meat Goat Producer Day! These are biennial events, with swine and meat goat days held in odd years and the beef and sheep programs held in even years. Each junior day program is a one-day educational opportunity for youth, parents, project leaders, agents, and other adults to increase their knowledge about youth livestock production and management. All ages are welcome, but all attendees must register. The cost for each junior day will be $15/person for those who register by the early deadline, and $20/person for those who register after the deadline. Please note, any registrations received after the early deadline cannot be guaranteed a t-shirt. There are not any refunds.
