Geauga Dairymen

The Geauga Dairymen 4-H Club attended Dairy Palooza, completed a community service project and held its May meeting.

Six members attended Ohio 4-H Dairy Palooza on May 3. The statewide event held at the Wayne County Fairgrounds offered a variety of dairy-related learning activities throughout the day. Club members attended sessions focusing on good production practices, how to prepare cattle for the show ring, cattle reproduction and science fun with ice cream. Some members also participated in quality assurance to meet the annual certification requirement. It was a fun and educational event.

The club did a community service project on May 24. Members cleaned up the yard of a senior citizen in Geauga County. They worked together to pick up sticks, rake leaves, wash windows and weed the flowerbed.

A monthly meeting was held on May 24. Project books, Skill-a-Thon information packets and Geauga 4-H fundraiser candy bars were distributed to the members.

Advisor Emma reviewed the supplies members need to purchase to care for their dairy animals this summer and items that will be needed for the fair. The club approved purchasing a set of clippers for all members to use.

The next meeting will be held in June.
