Berks County 4-H Members Participate in Dairy Shows

Posted: October 20, 2014

Please see the results of the Berks County 4-H members during the SE Regional Dairy Show and the Pennsylvania Junior Dairy Show at the Farm Show Complex in Harrisburg.

Congratulations to our Berks County 4-H Dairy members who competed this summer in the Southeast District Dairy Show as well as the Pennsylvania Junior Dairy Show.

Berks County had twenty-three 4-H members show their dairy cattle at the Lebanon County Fairgrounds in August for the Southeast District Dairy Show. Fourteen members moved on to the Pennsylvania Jr. Dairy Show that was held in September in Harrisburg. All the 4-H members did a great job showing their dairy cattle and representing the Berks County 4-H.
