HARRISBURG (Dauphin
Co.) More than 250 entries
from 4-H dairy youth representing
a seven-county central Pennsylva
nia region were congratulated by
judges last Saturday for the quality
of animals displayed during the
South Central District 4-H Dairy
Show, held at the state Farm Show
Complex in Harrisburg.
Those participating in 4-H dairy
show competitions exhibit animals
first at the county level, where
those whose animals are judged to
have enough quality are presented
with blue ribbons and qualify for
district competition.
The qualification judging is not
related to how the animals placed
within their age class.
At districts, judges again award
ribbons based on the merit of the
animal for further competition at
the state show, set to be held Sept
25, during the Pennsylvania All-
American Dairy Show (PAADS).
Typically, there are 800 to 900
entries in the six breeds of the state
4-H show.
