Register Now for Livestock Interviews

Interviews emphasize many life skills such as communication, responsibility, decision making and problem solving.  Possible questions include:

  • Tell me more about the animal you are bringing to achievement day
  • How do you prepare your animal for show?
  • What are some characteristics of your animal?
  • Have you been involved in any other livestock opportunities?

Animal science interviews will take place at the Douglas County Fairgrounds on Monday, August 17 from 1-7 PM in the Erickson Pavilion Building.  Each interview will last approximately 5-7 minutes and are conducted for beef, dairy, goat, horse, poultry, rabbit, sheep and swine.  You are only required to participate in one interview although you may signup for multiple species if you desire.
