DAIRY JUDGING IS CONTINUING!
(This is what Morgynne and Kyndall participated in last year)
Keith Maxey: I wanted to let you know that I’ve received approval from CSU to go ahead with the Colorado 4-H Dairy Judging program. It will be modified a little…the first two sessions will be virtual, via Zoom videoconference. After that we will have live animal workouts at dairy farms and then a state contest. At this point I’m not sure about a senior team to a national level contest this fall as I’ve not heard whether those events will be held or not.
I don’t have the dairies all lined up yet, but here is what I anticipate the schedule to be:
June 11 – Zoom video conference 10:00 – 11:00 a.m.
June 18 – Zoom video conference 10:00 – 11:00 a.m.
June 25 – Live animal workout, Carpio Dairy, 9:30 – 12:00 noon
July 2 – Live animal workout, 9:30 – 12:00 noon
July 9 – Live animal workout, 9:30 – 12:00 noon
July 16 – Live animal workout, 9:30 – 12:00 noon
July 23 – State Contest, 8:30 – 2:00 p.m.
There are some procedures that we will have to follow, including having youth and volunteers sign waivers prior to participating (in the face-to-face workouts). I will explain all of that on the first Zoom meeting on June 11.
I’m excited to be able to offer the judging program and I hope you will encourage your members to participate. I will be asking participants to RSVP their participation in the program. At that time, I will share the Zoom link with them. Let me know if you have any questions.
