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 2022 Mountain State Fair when the calves are sold. Participants will attend an informational orientation to prepare them for their project, participate in other events, where they will work with their calf, and conclude their project by showing and selling their calves at the Mountain State Fair in September.
