LOUISVILLE, KY. - A team of four Wisconsin 4-H members was the top overall team at the Invitational Youth Dairy Cattle Judging Contest at the North American International Livestock Exposition in Louisville, Ky. on Nov. 6.

Eighty youth on 21 teams from across the USA competed at this event. The 4-H team from Wisconsin placed first overall and was the second-place team for reasons. The team was also first place in the Jersey breed and second place in the Guernsey, Brown Swiss and Holstein breeds and third in the Ayrshire breed.

The Green County representative was John Klossner. He qualified to be a member of this team at the State 4-H Dairy Judging contest in July by being in the top four individuals from the contest who were not on a team that had already qualified for a national contest.

The team members were also successful individually with all four team members placing in the top ten for reasons and the top 15 overall. Klossner was the seventh high individual overall and eighth in reasons.

The team's win at Louisville came after a year of dairy judging for the four members who started practicing early this spring with their county programs and continued to practice with their county coaches.
