The educational 4-H Dairy program and related activities (such as workshops and tours) provide youth a fun and hands-on learning experience which develops both dairy subject skills (such as nutrition, housing, and health care) and life skills (such as responsibility, decision-making, nurturing, and communications) under the direction of caring adults.


IMPORTANT:  The Dairy HEIFER Record Sheets are used only for Dairy animals used for milking.  The Dairy Starter Calves and Dairy Finished Steers will use the BEEF Record Sheets - SEE BEEF PROJECT FOR GRADE RECORD SHEETS.


4-H members (Grades 3 – 12) must identify all Beef and Dairy Cattle in the 4HOnline system by the species deadline or earlier county deadline if applicable* to be eligible for exhibition.  Login to your family profile at for Dairy Cattle Identification Instructions.
