Enroll Kids in 4-H Dairy Camp by April 15th

Missouri 4-H Dairy Camp is an exciting event for youth interested in dairy. It will be held in Springfield, Missouri on June 2-4, 2004. University of Missouri Extension sponsors the special 4-H Dairy Camp.

Extension staff, along with professional fitters and volunteers, will provide educational seminars. Participants will be guided through the basics and finer points of fitting dairy cattle. Youth will work in small groups that receive individual assistance.

Cattle and equipment will be provided, but if you have your own grooming equipment, please bring it for the camp. There are prizes for judging and showmanship.

Rooms in the same area as the campers will be available for parents at a cost of $60.00 per night.

Lunch is provided on Thursday and Friday, dinner on Wednesday and Thursday. A continental breakfast is provided by the motel. Deadline for application is April 15. Enrollment is limited to the first 40.
