    A huge kudos to Fond du Lac County Dairy Project members who participated in this year's 4-H Dairy Judging Contest!

(6th), Dylan R. (8th), Cameron R. (13th). Our next 3 team members: Lucia L., Isaac L., and Leah M. would have placed 6th as a team. Congratulations to these hard-working dairy members, and a huge hat off to Joe Loehr and Chad Ryan for coaching.
