Events and Dairy Shows


4-H scholarships are available for senior members of Larimer County 4-H and the Dairy program. Please visit the link below to learn more.


There are six major dairy breeds that we learn about in the dairy project. There are several other cross-breeds and miniature breeds that we learn about and show as well.


Please make sure to thank your dairy sponsors every day! We would not be able to provide this amazing program without their help and dedication.

Dairy shows and events

We encourage all members to participate in the many shows and events that are put on in Weld and Larimer County.  We also try to schedule a field trip in April to a dairy in the area.  These are great ways for members to show that they have learned and to learn from older members.  Field trips provide additional information on herdsmanship, nutrition and care of our animals.
