Missouri 4-H Dairy Cow Camp
Wednesday, May 24, 2017, 1 p.m. to Friday, May 26, 2017, 3 p.m.
Youth ages 8-18 interested in learning about the dairy industry will want to register for 4-H Dairy Cow Camp, scheduled for May 24-26.
“This camp draws attention to the importance of farming and its important role in Missouri’s economy. It provides youth a “hands-on” opportunity to care for dairy animals and learn about many aspects of dairy production while learning life-skills at the same time,” according to Karla Deaver, 4-H Youth Development Specialist.
Campers work in pairs under the direction of adults and take part in workshops to learn about judging dairy animals, dairy management, animal care ethics and showmanship. Persons working in the dairy industry visit with campers about careers in the dairy industry as well.
Participants at the 2017 cow camp will also be certified in the Show-Me Quality Assurance program. The primary goal of the program is to increase the knowledge and awareness of Missouri youth about food quality issues related to animal production.
A judging contest and showmanship competition provide the culmination for the camp.
