Dodge County Fair to offer Moo booth this year

July 28, 2014 | 0 comments

The Dodge County Dairy Youth Group is planning a very special Moo Booth, an educational area in the Junior Dairy Barn at the Dodge County Fair.

"The booth will be in honor of our late FFA adviser, Grace Roberts, who passed away earlier this year," said Alexus Butler, the Dodge County 4-H summer agent who was also in the Dodgeland FFA under the guidance of Roberts.

"There are fewer dairy entries at the fair this year so there is room in the barn," Butler added.

The Moo booth will feature a calf from each of the dairy breeds, and dairy youth members will be on hand to talk with fair visitors about the dairy industry.

The booth will feature hands-on activities for children visiting the fair, including the opportunity to "milk" a full-size wooden cow that was built by Carl Werner, an area dairy farmer who worked with the dairy youth program at the fair for many years.

There will also be opportunities for youth to participate in an educational scavenger hunt, receiving a prize at the end of the hunt.

Agricultural coloring books will be available for children attending the fair as well.

"It's all about connecting the public with dairy producers," Butler said. "It has been a popular attraction at the Wisconsin State Fair for many years, and we decided it was time to bring this type of activity to the Dodge County Fair."

Funding from the Moo Booth came from a grant from the Professional Dairy Producers of Wisconsin.

There will be other opportunities for visitors to learn about Wisconsin agriculture throughout the fair, including in the A Promotion tent near the Youth Building on the fairgrounds. That tent will have daily activities for children, and on Saturday it will be the site of the 4-H centennial birthday celebration.

The Dodge County Fair runs from Aug. 13-17 at the Dodge County Fairgrounds, east of Beaver Dam.
