Dairy Judging will run from April through the state contest in July. The top individual Sr’s will have the opportunity to participate in the national contests in Harrisburg, Madison, or Louisville. Dairy judging involves “placing” 4 animals of a similar age and giving “reasons” why you placed them that way. Dairy judging develops key life skills! The ability make a decision and analyze that decision, public speaking, critical thinking skills, and reasoning skills.
