Overview of Events
Market Animal College participants will register for BOTH the morning and afternoon session on Saturday, April 24th. In the morning, participants will participate in a variety of livestock nutrition, showmanship, fitting, and marketing courses to refine their skills as a livestock exhibitor. The afternoon session will provide youth, should they choose to participate, the opportunity to showcase some of the skills they learned during the morning in our Showmanship Showdown! Look for more information about a NEW piece to Market Animal College: our Livestock Olympics are open to any participant that is bringing their own livestock the day of the event. Compete to show that you are the top showman in our Livestock Olympics by completing a series of hands-on challenges with your livestock in-tow.

Registration is only $10 and includes a MAC bag, notebook, t-shirt, & $5 Rockingham Cooperative coupon
