4-H Finger Lakes Dairy Bowl Contest

  • Saturday, March 7, 2020, 8:30 AM - 4:00 PM

The primary objective of 4-H Dairy Bowl Contests is to provide an opportunity for youth, 8-18 years old as of 1/1/20, to demonstrate their knowledge of dairy related subject matter in a competitive setting where attitudes of friendliness and fairness prevail. You don’t have to own dairy cattle to participate in dairy quiz bowl. 

The Dairy Bowl Program is designed to encourage youth to increase their dairy knowledge through study and preparation for the contest.

Youth learn life skills as they prepare for contests - critical thinking, decision-making, problem solving, communication skills, listening skills, speaking skills and independent thinking. They experience the value of teamwork, character building, and goal setting.

Youth gain knowledge in dairy nutrition, milk quality, herd health, breeding and genetics, marketing, dairy foods, calf raising and all cattle breeds.

It is also hoped that these contest will prove to be an educational experience for both participants and spectators.
