2018 State 4-H Dairy Judging Results


Seventy youth competed at the State 4-H Dairy Judging Contest held on July 16th in Black River Falls in conjunction with the State Ayrshire and Guernsey shows. Ayrshire and Guernsey animals were pulled out of the show strings and Holstein, Brown Swiss, and Jersey cattle were trucked in from nearby farms to make classes for the contest.  A huge thank you goes out to all of the Black River Falls area breeders who provided animals for the contest and to the Ayrshire and Guernsey breeders who welcomed the State 4-H Dairy Judging Contest to their show.
