NC Spring Dairy Show

We are excited to announce that the first annual NC Spring Dairy Show will be held March 21-23, 2019, at the Winston-Salem Fairgrounds. The NC Spring Dairy Show will host a competitive “5 Breeds Show” for both Open and Youth divisions on Saturday, March 23, 2019, with Mr. Chip Savage of Maryland serving as our judge. Participation in this show is open to all adults and youth from any state and we encourage you to join us for a fun-filled weekend of dairy events.

Show entries will be due March 1, 2019, to Nancy Keith with a $10.00 per head entry fee for the open show. Attached below you will find the show rules and regulations, schedule of events, entry forms, sponsorship request letter, and PDCA Code of Ethics as this show will follow all PDCA rules.

In conjunction with the show, we will also host the NC 4-H and FFA Dairy Judging and Dairy Handlers Contest on Friday, March 22 starting at 9:00 a.m. In addition, Cowbuyer will be managing and hosting a “5 Breeds Heifer Sale” at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, March 21. Visit the Cow Buyer website for catalog and sale updates.

Lastly, this show could not be made possible without the generous donations of our sponsors. We are currently seeking sponsors for our show and if you know of any patrons or businesses willing to help support our youth and show please do not hesitate to pass along the sponsor letter that is included. Sponsorships can be made payable to NCPDCA and mailed to Dr. Stephanie Ward at
