McHenry Team Wins 4-H Dairy Judging Contest

Youth bring home honors from the state 4-H dairy judging contest.

The 4-H dairy judging team from McHenry County placed first in the senior division of the North Dakota 4-H dairy judging contest held with the recent FFA contest at North Dakota State University.

Team members are Brian Frounfelter, Caleb Cross, Lane Bachmeier and Tristan McMahon, all of Granville. Frounfelter was the high individual in the contest.

The team is eligible to represent North Dakota 4-H at the national dairy judging contest held in conjunction with the World Dairy Expo in Madison, Wis., this fall.

Dairy judging consists of evaluating classes of four animals and ranking them based on conformation. Contestants defend their placing with oral reasons.

The second-place senior division team from Foster County consisted of Candace Nysted and Brad Hoppe of Carrington, Sean Nichols of Sykeston and Casey Mack of Kensal.

The Ransom County team of Kaitlin Geyer and Zach Bear of Lisbon, Kylee Myers of Ft. Ransom, Haley Anderson of Milnor and Garrett Oland of Sheldon placed third in the senior 4-H division.

The team representing Morton County placed first in the junior 4-H division. Team members are Ivy Klusmann, Brooke Kunz and Fayth Hoger of New Salem, and Samantha Johnson and Justin Johnson of Mandan. Klusmann had the high individual score.

The NDSU Department of Animal Sciences and North Dakota 4-H Foundation sponsored the contest with financial support from the North Dakota Milk Producers and Midwest Dairy Association of North Dakota. The contest was held under the direction of NDSU Extension Service dairy specialist J.W. Schroeder and NDSU dairy manager Todd Molden.
