Southeast Dairy Judging 101

— Written By

Join us for a dairy judging clinic, designed for youth AND coaches, taught by Dr. Katharine Knowlton, Va Tech Professor and Coach of Dairy Judging Team. This training will be held January 12 in Chester, SC and comes just in time to get ready for the state judging contest (which will be held at the Dixie Classic Fairgrounds, on March 22, 2019–more details to come on that contest shortly).

There is no registration fee thanks to support from the NC Purebred Dairy Cattle Association, NC Dairy Youth Foundation, and dairy organizations in SC and GA. However, to have an accurate count, please register at the link below.
