An event every day that begins at 10:00 am, repeating until June 25, 2023
June is National Dairy Month! With its 150-year tradition of agricultural excellence, Billings Farm & Museum will pay tribute to the next generation of dairy farmers by hosting the Youth Invitational Dairy Show.
On Saturday, get a peek behind the scenes at the care and grooming of show cows, as youth from local 4H groups prepare to compete. The animals receive an impressive full body makeover by their young handlers who wash, brush, blow dry, clip, and groom their show cows.
On Sunday, exhibitors will have the chance to show off their cows and the hard work behind preparing cattle for show. The youth will compete for showmanship awards and scholarships to be presented in three categories with one overall winner.
