Wisconsin’s Youth Livestock Program has announced its spring offerings for 2023.
This first program offered is the education series. It is offered in connection with the UW-Madison Animal & Dairy Sciences Department, College of Agricultural and Life Sciences, and Division of Extension.
The WYLP is offering free, live virtual Zoom educational programs. The topics are for youth and adults alike. They’ll be the first Monday of the month from January through March. Each session starts at 7 p.m. The presentation is followed by a question-and-and session.
At the webpage, you can also find an educational verification form. Complete the form and turn it into your county fair and/or livestock committee to verify your participation. These activities can serve as “county education requirements.”
The sessions will provide awareness and knowledge of animal agriculture and will give you the details on careers and how this area connects with your animal project.
