State Dairy Judging Results

After the winter shows wrap up, dairy judging season begins. As many know, youth work hard to learn dairy cattle anatomy, use a defined scorecard to evaluate animals and defend their class placings through sets of oral reasons. These competitions train youth to analyze, make decisions, problem solve and improve communication skills. FFA holds their evaluation competition in March and 4-H is in April. We appreciate these coaches, participants and dairy producers who volunteer their time and animals for team practices. Results from this year’s 2022 contests follow:
