My best dairy field day ever! I was re-crowned as Ayrshire Jr. Princess, was FINALLY in the top five individual judgers, and was on the FIRST PLACE 4-H JUDGING TEAM!!! Woo Hoo!!!
Wish every dairy field day was that great. = )
The Upper Chesapeake (Maryland) region dairy princess pageant was held May 26. I remember how I felt in the contestants' position: nervous, uncertain and yet, excited. I decided to run for Upper Chesapeake Dairy Princess when a few friends involved in the dairy industry presented me with the idea. I thought they were crazy. I did not know the duties of a dairy princess. I was simply a farm girl who didn’t mind getting her hands dirty. However, my family and friends insisted, and I tried. I…Continue

My husband has 30 plus years in the dairy industry and can do anything, from milking,calves,feeding, running equipment, cropping, etc. We live in Maine, are willing to relocate. Need housing.

And within in a few minutes of looking over the blog posts on the University of California-Davis website, (…Continue

Ever since I started showing dairy heifers in high school I knew that the Dairy Industry was where I belonged. I now work on a dairy and I absolutely love it. There is nothing like getting up and going to a job you love. I love just being around and working with the greatest animals ever. They offer so much resources to the people all around the word and I am proud to be working with them. I like being able to help keep cows healthy and comfortable for everything they give to us. There is…Continue
