We wanted to make everyone aware of the new Billy Nance Family 4-H Meat Goat Leadership Institute. This event is designed for youth ages 14-19, and currently enrolled in High School. We ask that you please forward this information on to any youth that have an interest in the Meat Goat Industry.
The event will be held February 27th at the NCSU Beef Educational Unit and will begin at 9:00am and conclude around 5:30pm with a meal for the youth and their parents. Also, Brent Jennings is working to finalize the agenda and speakers so if you would like a detailed copy of the agenda please let him know. Once he has received the applications there will be a selection committee to determine the top twenty youth to attend. Then, letters will be sent out to notify the kids.
Also, please note that youth can apply for both the Perry & Doris Teeter Beef Leadership Institute and the Billy Nance Family Meat Goat Leadership Institute, but must fill out two separate applications. Finally, please note that the applications are due to Brent Jennings office by January 8th. To download the application, click here. If you have any questions regarding this opportunity, please contact Brent.
