Area Animal Science Days
Area Animal Science Days, formally known as the District Dairy and Livestock Days, were started with the intention of giving as many young people as possible an opportunity to learn more about livestock and dairy evaluation.

These days are focused on the learning experience rather than the contests. This year’s area host will be Clark County on Friday, June 22, 2018. Information on the event can be found here.
