Change of Session Dates – 2016 and Beyond

News | No Comments

In order to better accommodate our Host Farms, the KEMI Board has made changes to our program dates that will take effect in 2016 and beyond. The Spring Session will be shortened by one week. Interns will still arrive in mid-January, but will be finishing up the last week of May/first few days of June. The Fall Session interns will then arrive mid-June and finish up the last week of November/first few days of December. This means the Fall session will be lengthened by about two weeks. This change was suggested by those farms that primarily prep yearlings. They requested that we bring the interns in earlier to expose them to those yearlings being prepared for the July sales.

Future Dates for KEMI sessions:

2016 Spring
January 11 – June 3

2016 Fall
June 20 – December 2

2017 Spring
January 9 – June 2

2017 Fall
June 19 – December 1

2018 Spring
January 8 – June 1

2018 Fall
June 18 – November 30

Future sessions will follow the same pattern. These changes do not affect the application dates.

  • Spring applications are accepted between August 1 and October 31.
  • Fall applications are accepted February 1 – April 30.
