WOOSTER, Ohio — Founded in 2011 as a way to bring more 4-H youth to participate in dairy events, DairyPalooza has quickly grown to be the premier event in the state of Ohio when it comes to 4-H dairy programs.
With a turnout of more than 300 youth and adults, the 2013 DairyPalooza was the most successful year yet.
The May 4 event boasted a state-certified dairy quality assurance program, new for 2013, which fulfilled the state 4-H program requirements for quality assurance and those of many Ohio counties as well.
Separate sessions for Cloverbuds were held all day.
Sessions on nutrition, reproductive physiology, sire selection and mating, pedigrees, selecting dairy projects, fitting, and cheese science were among the those offered
A career expo was featured and the day concluded with door prizes. All preregistered youth received event T-shirts, goodie bags and resource packets.
