The Edna 4-H Dairy project provides participants with exposure to various aspects of dairy animal husbandry, dairy operations, and dairy products as well.  We meet 1x/month, usually on weekends, and do different activities such as Cal Poly Dairy tour, cheesemaking, dairy product tasting, a goat dairy visit, and dairy processing plant visit, amongst other things.  After first of the new year, we’ll begin dairy cattle judging in preparation of the judging team competing at the Western Classic Dairy Show in Hanford in early March.  Next, participants will be better equipped to choose their own dairy animal from the Cal Poly dairy to show as their own dairy heifer at the Mid State Fair in July. Although Cal Poly maintains housing and feeding of the dairy heifers, participants have a large responsibility of practicing leading and grooming the dairy heifer prior to the show.  The busiest time for this project is typically late May, June, and July.  For more information, contact Alan Vander Horst:
