  • Saturday, March 2, 2019, 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Tentatively Saturday, March 2 Finger Lakes District Dairy Quiz Bowl Contest, at Midlakes School

The Finger Lakes District will send a junior and a senior team to the state competition at Cornell University on April 27th. These teams will be composed of the top four individuals with the 5th place as the alternate in each division.

4-H Dairy Quiz Bowl National competition, in Louisville, KY in November 2019, will be selected from the top individuals in the Sr. Division at the state contest. Note: 4-H members will need to be 15-18 years old as of January 1, 2019 to be eligible for the NYS 4-H Dairy Quiz Bowl Team.

Youth and adult volunteers interested in participating please contact Kim at 607-664-2571 or at ksb3@cornell.edu if you have not already done so.

The primary objective of 4-H Dairy Bowl Contests is to provide an opportunity for youth, 8-18 years old as of 1/1/19, 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. It is also hoped that these contest will prove to be an educational experience for both participants and spectators. 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.
