Are you interested in learning to show dairy cattle? Are you seeking the opportunity to do so during your time at Penn State?

The 2024  Penn State Dairy Expo will be held on April 6th at the Snider Agricultural Arena. The event is open to all students interested in gaining hands on experience with dairy cattle and learning the basics of preparing and handling animals for a show.

You will have time to practice and prepare with your animal in the weeks prior to the event. Experienced showmen from the club will be providing demonstrations and tips regarding fitting and showmanship. All practices will be held at the Penn State Dairy Barns. Participants in this competition will be broken down into three categories: Amateur, Intermediate, and Professional based on dairy fitting and showmanship experience. Spectators are also welcome, so invite your friends and family to attend this fun, long-standing tradition.

There is an entry fee of $35 which includes a t-shirt and all supplies. To register (by Friday, March 8th) or if you have questions please contact Jay Bratton at
