Wisconsin Holstein Holds Annual Cow Camp for Youth

Baraboo, Wis. — May 13, 2014…The Wisconsin Holstein Association held its annual Cow Camp May 3-4, 2014 at the Sugar Creek Bible Camp in Ferryville, Wis. The camp provides Junior members with a hands-on experience through various workshops revolving around the Registered Holstein cow.

A full camp of 90 junior members and Holstein enthusiasts from around the state attended this year’s weekend-long event. Campers spent the days attending stations focused on showmanship, first-aid, dairy cattle photography, cow anatomy, and show-day fundamentals. Industry experts were in attendance to educate the campers on each of the topics.

The Junior Activities Committee and Holstein Royalty serve as camp counselors and coordinate all details of the camp each year. Along with the educational stations, Junior’s have time for fun activities as well. Highlights from the weekend included Farmer Olympics, a Princess scavenger hunt and bonfire.

Cow Camp rotates around the state of Wisconsin each year in order to be more accommodating to its members. Camp is open to any youth interested in the Registered Holstein cow under the age of 14. While at camp, Junior’s gain valuable knowledge on the industry and establish friendships with others with similar interests. The 2015 Cow Camp will be on located on the east side of the state.

The Association would like to thank our industry experts Matt & Molly Dorshorst, Eileen DeBruin, and Kevin Larson, as well as our event sponsors Badgerland Financial, Animart, and AlphaGenetics for their support.
