New York, Wisconsin Teams Excel in Junior Dairy Management Contest during All-American Dairy Show

Morgan Depue of Hamburg, N.Y., won the $1,000 scholarship from the Pennsylvania Dairymen’s Association at the 33rd annual Junior Dairy Management Contest, Tuesday, Sept. 17, during the 2019 All-American Dairy Show at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex and Expo Center in Harrisburg. 

Depue, the high individual for the contest, led her New York 4-H team to victory in the 4-H division. That team, like other out-of-state 4-H teams, won their state dairy management contests before competing at the All-American.

Participants evaluated two classes of dairy cattle, identified feeds, recognized cuts of beef, and answered questions about genetics, good production practices, and business management in a contest designed to further their agricultural education and help prepare them for dairy industry careers.

Seven different timed classes were used to evaluate contestants. The five highest scoring individuals were then interviewed about current dairy issues by judges from the industry, before the final ranking was made. The highest placing individual, 4-H team, and FFA team received a plaque to commemorate their accomplishments.
