Youth Compete in N.D. State 4-H Livestock Quiz Bowl

Teams from Oliver, Morton, Stark-Billings, Golden Valley, Mountrail and Pembina counties took top honors in the second state 4-H livestock quiz bowl held at North Dakota State University.

The contest provides an opportunity for youth enrolled in the North Dakota 4-H livestock project to demonstrate their knowledge of animal science-related subject matter in a friendly, yet competitive, setting.

Youth were tested on all food animal livestock species: beef, dairy, swine, goat (dairy and meat), sheep, poultry and rabbit. The 4-H’ers also fielded questions about Youth for the Quality and Care of Animals, a national multispecies quality assurance program for youth ages 8 to 21, with a focus on three core pillars: food safety, animal well-being and character development.

Fifty-five youth representing six North Dakota counties completed in the quiz bowl.
