Kewaunee County youth begin animal care training

To sell an animal at the Kewaunee County Fair’s livestock auction, a child must enroll in quality care training. Most take the course online since over 100 students typically enroll, but Thursday was an opportunity for in-person instruction from Agriculture Educator Aerica Bjurstrom. She says there are different themes each year and details what is being taught for 2020.


Bjurstrom teaches a national curriculum developed by the Youth for Quality Care of Animals (YQCA) organization. It focuses on animals as small as rabbits up to swine and cattle, everything except horses.
