Regardless of where you plan to go, please use the link above to sign up for a spot before Thursday, March 11. Both check-ins are open to all District 4-H Members. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, all members and family will be required to wear a mask if they exit the vehicle. For any questions or information, feel free to contact Justine Henderson at 785-392-2147 or jwh04@ksu.edu.

Youth for the Quality Care of Animals

ALL livestock exhibitors (beef, swine, sheep, meat goat) ages 8 and older are once again required to be YQCA-certified in order to participate in the 2021 Ottawa County Fair, Tri-Rivers Fair, Kansas State Fair Grand Drive, and/or Kansas Junior Livestock Show (KJLS). This includes youth who will be showing market animals, commercial breeding females, and/or registered purebred breeding females.

For more details about the YQCA program, please contact Justine Henderson (jwh04@ksu.edu or 785-392-2147).
