Judging Team - Seeking Sponsorships

The State 4-H Dairy Judging Program has lost a large annual corporate sponsorship and is seeking to replace approximately $3500 of its annual budget. This includes monies needed to complete the competition year in 2017.

See the attached letter from Karla Deaver and Ted Probert, Extension Specialists as to how you or someone you might know could help continue this legacy as we promote the dairy industry and lifelong skills learned by all of the participants!

It is important for juniors also to get their state dues paid on time, with the correct address, phone number and email address. This is the information we utilize to contact you throughout the year regarding awards, programs, activities, etc. We do not want you to miss out on an event because we did not have your accurate information. State membership fees are due by March 15. If your household only has junior members (no adult membership) then you might want to consider adding a Mid-States Magazine subscription for $5. A great way to stay connected.
