The primary objective of Dairy Bowl contests is to provide an opportunity for youth interested in the field of dairy management to demonstrate their knowledge of dairy related subject matter in a competitive setting where attitudes of friendliness and fun prevail. It is also hoped that these contests will provide an educational experience for both participants and spectators.
