Contest results from Dr. Stan Henderson at Cal Poly:
Five of our students just returned from the North American Intercollegiate Dairy Challenge in Fort Wayne, Indiana and were one of the 4 winning teams in the competition. Since the contest has become very competitive with 32 universities competing, students evaluate one of 4 different dairies, hence 4 winning teams.
Our team and “academy” participants in the photo include: (back) Jared De Groot, Hanford (Dairy Academy); Dr. Stan Henderson, coach; David Vander Schaaf, Ripon; Micah De Groot, Visalia; (front) Mandy Brazil, Petaluma; Erin De Snayer, Lodi.
Teams at the farm we evaluated included: Cal Poly, Iowa State, Cornell, Idaho, West Virginia, Guelph, Purdue, and Kansas State. (“Several coaches thought this was the most competitive group, our students were up to the challenge.”) The contest was limited to a total of 32 teams, 128 students, 4 students per team. For the first time, 98 students took part in the Dairy Academy, a learning experience similar to Dairy Challenge that allows students to work with consultants on the dairy farm evaluation.
AgriVenture is an organization that matches international trainees with host families in a wide variety of agricultural operations. They currently have a large demand from young people ages 18-30 who would like to come and work on Holstein dairies specifically in California.
