Two prominent dairy breeds, Holstein and Jersey*, are highlighted during the Junior Dairy Show by Texas 4-H and FFA exhibitors. Cattle exhibited range in age from calves to cows that are already in production. Judges will focus primarily on udder quality and structural correctness along with other important physical traits. Included in the Junior Dairy Show is a showmanship competition where exhibitors are judged on their showing and fitting abilities.
