The WNC Dairy Beef Feeder Calf Program is designed to introduce 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 2021 Mountain State Fair when the calves are sold. Participants will attend an informational orientation to prepare them for their project, participate in other events/clinics where they will work with their calf, and conclude their project by showing and selling their calves at the Mountain State Fair.

Michelle South, Extension Area Agent, N.C. Cooperative Extension in Avery County would welcome the opportunity to work with youth (ages 8-18) and their families on this educational program. The program is designed to educate youth on the importance of agriculture and responsibility.

For additional information, please contact the N.C. Cooperative Extension, Avery County Center at (828) 733-8270, if you are interested in participating in the WNC Dairy Beef Feeder Calf Program.
