Kansas Junior Sheep Producer Day planned for March 29 at K-State


March 29 is the date for the Kansas Junior Sheep Producer Day to be held at Kansas State University’s Weber Arena in Manhattan.

The day brings together youth, parents, sheep project leaders and others to increase their knowledge about sheep production and management.

“The event is designed for all ages and skill levels. We work to provide a hands-on learning experience for younger participants,” said Kristine Clowers, youth livestock coordinator at K-State.

Registration begins at 8:45 a.m., with the program starting at 9:30 a.m. Featured speakers and K-State faculty and staff will cover such topics:

Selecting Your Youth Sheep Project;

Facilities, General Care and Health/Vaccination;

Breeds and Sheep Identification;

Shearing and Fitting for the Show;

Nutrition;

Nominations and DNA Hair Sampling; and

Showmanship.

All participants will receive a T-shirt and a complimentary lunch.

The cost to register is $15 per person if postmarked by March 7 or $20 if postmarked after that date. Participants who register after March 7 cannot be guaranteed a T-shirt. More information, online registration, and printable registration forms are available at www.YouthLivestock.KSU.edu. For questions, contact Kristine Clowers at clowers@ksu.edu or Brian Faris at brfaris@ksu.edu or 785-532-1242.
