Blue Ribbon Volunteers

Many words of appreciation should be given to our volunteers at the state contest on Saturday, April 4.  It was an impressive event with impressive results.  Behind the scenes, the scoring room did not finish until 4:00 p.m. with much more to finish up yet on Sunday.  The officials worked hard to create good classes and listened to reasons with patience and advice.  Exhibitors trusted us with their cattle and had them looking their best when they arrived at Voinovich.  In the forefront, you saw 4-H volunteers in each ring and hats off to our moderator, NEAL SMITH, who kept everything on schedule.  Our healthy sack lunches (prepared by Jackie Murray and her crew of the Beef Barn) were a new and appreciated addition to the event. The milk was needed to boost the brain cells before reasons for Senior and Intermediate contestants.  Juniors even had an opportunity to learn more about their reasons taught by Lara Staples and Anna Hall, former OSU judging team alum.  They then spent an hour or more evaluating for the top 6 award winners that were later recognized with a medallion.

And to all of our coaches, volunteers, and parents thank you for placing such a high educational value on this experience.

The strength of the Ohio 4-H Dairy program is due to the volunteer support of people who are willing to donate their time!
