Twenty nine years ago a few Benton County dedicated to
dairy volunteers began what we know as Dairy Days
in the month of June.
The reason for beginning Dairy Days was to provide another event
for 4-H and FFA kids to show their dairy cattle and provide more
dairy learning experiences. Twenty-nine years later,
the purpose is the same with expansion to include kids from 4 states.
4-State Dairy Days is an all youth dairy show and competitions for
kids from Oklahoma,Kansas,Missouri, and Arkansas promoting youth
participation in dairy cattle showing and dairy educational events.
I'm thankful for the dedicated organizers and businesses that support
4-State Dairy Days,
for the multi-generation family members involved in dairy activities,
for the skills learned with dairy project animals,
for the life lessons learned by caring for dairy
animals in a fun family oriented environment.
