The 2018 Gopher Dairy Camp will be held June 10 to 12 at the St. Paul Campus of the University of Minnesota. The Gopher Dairy Camp is open to youth that have completed grades six through nine, but haven’t yet started grade 10. It is hosted by the Gopher Dairy Club at the University of Minnesota in cooperation with the Minnesota 4-H Dairy Project Committee.
Held Sunday through Tuesday, the camp offers unique workshops which allow attendees to improve their cattle grooming skills and improve their knowledge of the production and processing of dairy products. McKenzie Swanson, a Mcleod County 4-H member, attended Gopher Dairy Camp multiple years and said this about her experience, “I looked forward to going to Gopher Dairy Camp every year, meeting up with friends and getting to learn more about fitting cattle were my favorite parts of camp. I had a positive experience at camp each year and those memories will last a lifetime.”
Registration will open in March of 2018 and attendance is limited to the first 100 youth that register for the event. For further information about Gopher Dairy Camp, please visit http://z.umn.edu/gdcamp.
