2019 WNC Dairy Beef Feeder Calf Program

— Written By Drawing of a cow

The WNC Dairy Beef Feeder Calf Program is designed to introduce new youth to livestock showing, feeding, and care. Participants in the program will be provided a dairy calf that they will feed and care for at their home or another approved facility from March through the 2019 Mountain State Fair when the calves are sold. Participants will attend an informational workshop to prepare them for their project and other events/clinics and conclude their project by showing and selling their calves at the Mountain State Fair.

Participants MUST submit a signed application which is due at the orientation meeting at the WNC Regional Livestock Center on February 26, 2019, at 6 p.m. Additionally, all participating youth are required to attend all of the mandatory meetings. These educational meetings are designed to help participants get the most out of their project. All interested participants should fill out their application prior to the orientation meeting. If at the conclusion of the meeting they decide to participate in the program, they should turn in their completed application. The applications will be reviewed by members of the Dairy Beef Feeder Calf Program Committee and successful applicants will be notified.
