MANHATTAN, Kan. – The Kansas State University Youth Livestock Program, K-State Research and Extension, and the K-State Department of Animal Sciences and Industry will host two junior producer days in the spring of 2017. Junior Swine Producer Day will be Saturday, March 11 and Junior Meat Goat Producer Day will be Saturday, March 25.

Both events will be in Weber Arena on the Kansas State University campus in Manhattan. The junior day programs are a one-day educational opportunity for youth, parents, 4-H and FFA project leaders, agents, and other adults to increase their knowledge about livestock production and management. All ages are welcome, but all attendees must register. These are biennial events, with swine and meat goat days hosted in odd years and beef and sheep in even years.

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. Early registration for Junior Swine Producer Day is Feb. 22 and March 3 for Junior Meat Goat Producer Day. Registrations received after the early deadline cannot be guaranteed a t-shirt.
