4-H Dairy Quiz Bowl & Management Date Set!

The Wisconsin 4-H Dairy Quiz Bowl and Dairy Management contest will take place on Saturday, February 7th in Portage, WI.  This year the contest will be moving back to the John Muir Elementary School due to a scheduling conflict with ACT testing which will be taking place that same day at the high school.

Competition in the 4-H Dairy Bowl and Dairy Management Contests encourages a 4-H member to develop a more complete knowledge of dairy animals and related subjects.  These contests provides an educational dairy program for all dairy project members, including those who may not own or show a dairy project animal, and provides a way to develop alertness and self-confidence.

 The Dairy Bowl is a “quiz bowl” competition where all questions deal with dairy topics.  Teams of four members compete with each other in giving oral answers to questions posed by a moderator.  Teams receive points for correct answers and may lose points for incorrect answers.  The team with the highest final score is the winner.

In the Dairy Management Contest, teams work both as individuals and together to answer questions related to the management of a dairy farm and dairy cattle.  Team members work through various stations and at the end of the event, the total score for the team is added together to determine the final team score.

Both of these contest offer the opportunity for youth to test and showcase their knowledge of dairy cattle science and the dairy industry.  For more information, including entry forms and contest rules, please visit the Dairy Management Contest page and the Dairy Quiz Bowl Contest page.
