COLORADO 4-H TEAM COMPETES AT NATIONAL DAIRY JUDGING CONTEST
The Colorado 4-H Dairy Judging team recently completed competition at the National 4-H Dairy Cattle Judging Contest in Madison, Wisconsin. The contest was held on October 1 in conjunction with the World Dairy Expo.
Team members were Awna Hirsch, Eaton, Megan Podtburg, Greeley, and Kyndall & Morgynne Tucker, Fort Collins. Coaching the team were Keith Maxey, Greeley, and Debbie Carpio, Kersey. A total of 91 individuals, from 24 teams across the U.S. and Canada participated in the contest.
The contest required participants to place ten classes of dairy cattle, representing five different dairy breeds, and present five sets of oral reasons. Each placing class and each set of reasons is worth up to 50 points. Awna Hirsch walked away with Top Individual Overall honors with a total of 707 points. She is the first person from Colorado 4-H to win this coveted award since the contest’s inception nearly 100 years ago. Awna was also the 2nd High Individual in Reasons.
Colorado placed 4th overall in the team competition and was 7th overall in oral reasons. In breed classes, the team placed 4th in Brown Swiss and Holstein, 6th in Ayrshire, and 10th in Guernsey. Additionally, Awna Hirsch and Morgynne Tucker received All-American honors for their 1st and 25th high individual placings, respectively, and Kyndall Tucker was 6th high individual in the Holstein division.
World Dairy Expo serves as the meeting place of the global dairy industry, with approximately 70,000 people from 100 countries attending. This event showcases the world’s largest dairy-focused trade show, dairy and forage seminars, and world-class dairy cattle shows with over 2,000 head of cattle exhibited annually.
