4-H Livestock Quiz Bowl & Skillathon Contest

What:  Livestock Bowl is a quiz competition where all the questions are about beef, sheep, swine, and meat goat topics and students use a buzzer in order to answer the questions.  Teams compete in a double elimination format by giving oral answers to questions posed by a moderator.  Each match has both an individual and toss-up question round.  The winning 4-H senior team will represent Wisconsin at the National 4-H Livestock Quiz Bowl competition in Omaha, NE at the AKSARBEN Livestock Exhibition.

Skillathon contest is made up of a written quiz and learning stations such as breed identification, feed identification, equipment identification as well as some team activities such as demonstrating evaluation skills.  The top Senior level 4-H team will represent Wisconsin at the National 4-H Skillathon Contest, held each fall in Louisville at the North American International Livestock Exposition (NAILE).

Competition in Quiz Bowl & Skillathon encourages members to develop a more complete knowledge of animals and related subjects.  This contest provides an educational program for all project members, including those who may not own a project animal, and provides a way to develop self-confidence.  These programs are a great parallel to some similar programs that breed associations and other organizations conduct.

When: Saturday, March 7,  2020
Where:  UW Madison Animal Sciences Building
Time:  Registration  9 a.m., Competition starts 9:30 a.m.
