Stock Show University

Stock Show University is coming up on December 28 and 29 at the Rockingham County Fairgrounds, presented by Sullivan Supply.  This clinic is a free program where you can work one on one with the "professors" and learn today's techniques for clipping and fitting cattle.  The program is free for anyone to attend: adults and children, beginners or advanced clippers and fitters!  
This is an excellent hands-on opportunity for kids to learn proper washing, grooming, clipping and fitting techniques for their 4-H beef cattle projects.  Youth are encouraged to bring one of their calves for the workshop, but youth who want to come but don’t have a calf or can’t make arrangements to get it Harrisonburg are also welcome.  It will be an excellent learning opportunity for anyone with any level of experience.  Please feel free to call Herc Williams at (540)460-6194 with any questions you may have
Registration forms do need to be filled out and submitted at least one week before the clinic.  Please visit the document library and look under the "Livestock" folder for the registration information.
