Calling all dairy youth for Cream of the Crop Dairy Challenge

Aug. 20, 2014 | 0 comments

The fourth annual Cream of the Crop Dairy Challenge will take place in Jefferson on Saturday, Sept. 13

This a unique contest that will not only test dairy judging skills but will require participants to answer questions regarding a scenario of commercial heifers, registered heifers, evaluate DairyComp 305 herd reports, identify common dairy ration ingredients and evaluate a cow's conformation, production and pedigree.

They will then rank four sires based on their pedigree and proof information that will best complement the cow, and be able to identify 25 common dairy cattle diseases based on symptoms and photos.

Participants will also receive a 25-question multiple-choice exam that will cover milk quality, reproduction and general dairy industry information.

The DairyComp 305 record evaluation, disease identification, nutrition and 25 question multiple choice exam will be completed at Jefferson High School by half of the teams while the other half are bused to the Lundy Farm to start with the commercial heifers, registered heifers and the sire selection portion. Halfway through the contest, the teams will switch, giving each team 20 minutes at each station.

Sponsored by the Cream of the Crop 4-H Club, the Cream of the Crop Dairy Challenge begins at 10 a.m. at Jefferson High School, 700 W. Milwaukee St., with registration at 9:30 a.m.

To be eligible for the contest, participants must be between the ages of 9-19. Teams can be made up from any family or friends; there is no rule limiting participants to a single 4-H club, FFA chapter or even county. The only stipulation is that participants must not have graduated from high school prior to 2014, making most college freshman also eligible.

A $20 team entry fee entitles youth to entry, awards and an all-you-can-eat Rocky Rococo pizza lunch. The top ten teams will be awarded at the completion of the contest.

If you would like an entry form or have questions about the contest, please contact contest chairman Mark Lundy at markslundy@hotmail.com or 920-563-6137. Space is limited to the first 30 teams that register.
