Dairy Cattle Evaluation & Management, and Handlers


Thank you for your interest in our Dairy Judging Contest. We wanted to let you know that as we have made adjustments for our return to fairtime activities, we have had to make some tough decisions about what is reasonable for the 2021 fair. We have decided to forgo the ESE Dairy Judging and Handlers Contests for this year due to scheduling conflicts with other major events in the industry and lack of cattle availability. We do plan to implement this again in 2022! We hope that you will continue your interest in these events when we return to our Dairy Judging Contest schedule in 2022!
