Kewaunee County came through in the clutch for the state’s upcoming Area Animal Science Day in June. After one host fell through, Kewaunee County stepped up to host the multi-county event for the second time in three years. Over 400 youth are expected to come to the Kewaunee County Fairgrounds in Luxemburg to judge a slate of animals and be scored on their knowledge through breeding and market evaluation. Kewaunee County 4-H Educator Jill Jorgensen says it is a great opportunity for kids to get the other side of the experience they receive during fair season.
Area Animal Science Day, which is also happening at two other sites across the state, will host a number of different workshops, including ones focused on small animal projects like rabbits, poultry, dogs, cats or llamas. Interested youth have until June 1 to register with their respective county extension offices for the event on June 14.
