Competition in the 4-H Dairy Bowl encourages a 4-H member to develop a more complete knowledge of dairy animals and related subjects. This contest provides an educational dairy program for all dairy project members, including those who may not own a dairy project animal, and provides a way to develop alertness and self-confidence.
The Dairy Bowl is a “quiz bowl” competition where all questions deal with dairy topics. Teams of four members compete with each other in giving oral answers to questions posed by a moderator. Teams receive points for correct answers and may lose points for incorrect answers. The team with the highest final score is the winner.
The contest is organized on a double elimination basis with winning teams advancing into further rounds until a champion team emerges.
Sources of questions are 4-H dairy project literature, Hoard’s Dairyman publications and other dairy resources
