The Wisconsin Livestock Breeders Association’s (WLBA) 33rd Annual Spring Preview Show will be held on June 8 at the Jefferson Fair Park, Jefferson. Entries must be postmarked by May 1.

Junior livestock exhibitors and their families interested in gaining knowledge of the livestock industry, expanding project management skills, and learning new fitting and showing techniques, should consider adding the 15th Wisconsin Junior Livestock Camp to their calendar of summer events. This year’s camp is scheduled for June 16-17, and it will be held at Wisconsin State Fair Park. Out-of-state participants are welcome. Registration deadline is May 15.

The Wisconsin Summer Spectacular will be held in Wausau on Aug. 17 at the Marathon County Fairgrounds. Following the format of the popular Spring Preview Show, the Summer Spectacular will offer youth one last chance before the start of school to exhibit their livestock projects and participate in an educational quiz bowl and judging contest. Entries for this show must be postmarked by July 31.

2013 Master Stockman Award applications will be accepted at both the Spring Preview and Summer Spectacular Shows. Three $750 Master Stockman Award recipients will be chosen, as well as three $500 runner-ups.

Entry information and applications for all events, as well as 2013 Master Stockman Award applications, can be found on the WLBA website at www.wisconsinlivestockbreeders.com or by contacting Executive Director Jill Alf at 608-868-2505 or alfhamp@centurytel.net.
