4-H Animal Science Knowledge Contests provide the opportunity for youth to demonstrate their knowledge and skills in a competitive setting. Youth 8 - 19 who have a serious interest in learning more about horses and dairy cattle participate in a rigorous 8 - 10 week study course - preparing them for the Hippology and Quiz Bowl contests. Species specific knowledge contests are also held at the Wayne County Fair for dairy, horse, goats, sheep and rabbits.
In horse Hippology (the study of the horse) participants rotate through a series of topic "stations". Members participate as a team, as well as for individual placings.
Horse and Dairy Quiz Bowl is a "game style" contest where members of the team answer individual and team questions as well as compete for the chance to answer questions in the buzzer round.
For more information on these contests, contact the 4-H office at 315-331-8415.
