The dairy cattle project is a great way to learn more about the dairy industry and milk production, as well as animal nutrition, health and reproduction. Dairy project participants can demonstrate their knowledge and abilities through dairy cattle shows, in public speaking contests, and in dairy cattle judging. You are responsible for the purchase and primary care of your animal. This is a year-round commitment.
