    4-H’ers test their knowledge

    RANDOLPH CENTER — All roads lead to Randolph Center on March 16 for the State 4-H Dairy Quiz Bowl. The public is invited to watch as 4-H’ers demonstrate their ability to quickly and accurately answer dairy-related questions under pressure.

    The event, sponsored by University of Vermont Extension and Orange County 4-H, gets under way at 9:30 a.m. in Judd Hall at Vermont Technical College. The snow date is March 17 at the same location.

    Admission and parking are free.

    The competition, which is open to Vermont 4-H club members, 8 to 18 years old, includes a written test and several rounds of oral questions on a wide range of topics including dairy nutrition, anatomy, genetics, herd health, cattle breeds, feeds and forages, milk production and the dairy industry.

    In addition to increasing their dairy knowledge, participants hone life skills such as decision-making, problem-solving, communication skills, public speaking and critical thinking.

    The 4-H’ers will compete by age group, with the top four individuals in each group earning ribbons. The four highest scorers in the 14 and older division will be the State 4-H Dairy Quiz Bowl Team state team, which will compete at Eastern States Exposition in West Springfield, Mass., in September and the National Dairy Invitational in Louisville, Ky., in November.

    The dairy quiz bowl is the first of several statewide 4-H dairy events in 2013. To learn more, contact Wendy Sorrell, UVM Extension 4-H livestock educator, at 656-5418 or 800-571-0668, ext. 2, or by email at wendy.sorrell@uvm.edu.
