Its exciting to see the interest that youth have in the UW Extension livestock project area. About 150 youth partcipated in the project judging contest that was held recently at the fairgrounds in Manitowoc. Organizers say the program is drawing the interest of youth from off the farm as well as those from the farm.
Around 150 youth from throughout Northeastern Wisconsin participated in the district dairy science day at the fairgrounds in Manitowoc. The program not only helps these youth to fine tune their dairy casttle judging eye, but it also teaches some valuable life skills. And organizers are happy to see the number of non farm youth who are participating in the project as well.
