Dairy Cattle Show
Open & 4-H Classes
Dairy Cows are judged on the physical traits that show how long the cow will live a healthy life and produce milk. The rump, feet, legs and udder are the most important traits and this is why the cows are viewed from the rear during judging. Most exhibitors use a showstick in the show ring. This does not harm the animal. It is used to place the animals feet and stroke the animal to keep it content.
