WHO IS JACKRABBIT DAIRY CAMP FOR?
Jackrabbit Dairy Camp is open to anyone ages 9 to 15 who has a passion for the dairy industry or wants to learn more! Prior fitting and showing dairy heifers experience is not a requirement for our camp. We are excited to help campers learn the basics of showing dairy cattle while highlighting other industry aspects for a well-rounded dairy experience
Registration must be postmarked by April 26, or until the 60-student cap is reached, whichever comes first. Please watch the SDSU Dairy Club Facebook page for updates regarding camp. Registration materials can be sent to:
SDSU Dairy Club
Attn: Dairy Camp
Alfred Dairy Science Hall 136
Brookings, SD 57007
Professors at SDSU and industry professionals will give the various workshops from fitting to an udder dissection. SDSU students who are experienced showman showing at various national and state shows will assist students and be counselors for one-on-one learning experiences.
WHY COME TO CAMP
Every student will receive their own dairy heifer to learn how to clean, fit, and show their animal. They will also get to attend workshops including: Fitting, Showmanship, Udder Dissection and dairy cow reproductive physiology, and cheese making. We will also have many fun and interactive activities for the kids to relax and get to know one another from our luau celebration to bowling and our heifer auction.
