Dr. Maurice Eastridge, Extension Dairy Specialist, The Ohio State University
Ohio was represented at the Dairy Quiz Bowl Contest held during World Dairy Expo in Madison, WI. The team was from Wayne County and consisted of Sherri Gress, Hayden Gress, Laura Gordon, and Kerby Hershey. The team placed 4th out of 7 teams and was coached by Lisa Gress.
The 26th National 4-H Dairy Quiz Bowl competition was held at the North American International Livestock Exposition November 4-5 in Louisville, KY. Ohio did not have a team in the competition this year, but Drs. Maurice Eastridge and Peter Spike served as judges in the Contest. Nineteen state 4-H teams competed in this year's event. The top four teams were, respectively: New York, Maryland, Iowa, and Minnesota, with Georgia and Illinois receiving honorable mentions. Your help in encouraging youth to participate in this wonderful learning program would be appreciated.
