The Youth Livestock Judging Contest will be held on Saturday, February 24th at the Buffalo County Fairgrounds in Kearney. Youth will judge 8 classes split into two rounds (4 classes/round). There will be two age divisions - Junior (ages 8-13) and Senior (14 and up).

A change from last year is that exhibitors will be responsible for submitting their own animal information into the AKSARBEN livestock database prior to the nomination deadline. 

In the past, families have turned in DNA envelopes & breeding nomination cards to the office, staff mailed them in to AKSARBEN and the entry process was done manually.
