Livestock County Fair Management Clinic

Submitted by Lexie Hayes

The biennial Livestock County Fair Management Clinic will be hosted virtually April 5-6, 2022. This clinic is designed for county fair board members, extension agents and volunteers involved in local livestock fair management and leadership. The program consists of a forum for open communication for individuals working with livestock at their local fairs. Although some of the topics can be applied generally to the county fair, this program focuses on the livestock perspective. K-State faculty, staff, fair board members and extension agents will facilitate discussion directly related to livestock activities at local fairs in Kansas. The program is geared towards the input and participation of county fair board members, superintendents and extension agents, so fair board members and superintendents are highly encouraged to attend!

The program has been divided over two evenings, scheduled for 7-9 p.m., with different topics being covered each night. This year, each evening will open with a general session, followed by concurrent round table discussions. It would be advantageous for counties to have several individuals attend to cover all of the breakout sessions. The sessions will be recorded and available to attendees after the program.

The program is free, but participants need to register online by March 31: https://kstate.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_2hKAxBfaQHYPQHk.

For more information, please contact Dr. Joel DeRouchey, jderouch@ksu.edu; Kelsey Nordyke, klnordyke@ksu.edu; or Lexie Hayes, adhayes@ksu.edu.
