UW-Madison's Best of Hoard's Dairyman Cow Oral Reasons is an ideal resource for coaches of 4-H youth dairy judging teams, high school vo-ag instructors or youth looking to enhance their oral reason skill levels.

The DVD is produced by former UW-Madison instructor and judging team coach Ted Halbach. Halbach coached six winning oral reasons teams at the National Intercollegiate Dairy Cattle Judging Contest and three national championship squads during his tenure. His team's .917 winning percentage at the National Contest from 1998 to 2010 ranked first among all competing universities.
