Winnebago County Dairy Show Fee Reimbursement Program
Our Show Fee Reimbursement Program is ready for the 2019 show season. This program is designed to encourage youth to participate in dairy cattle shows outside of the County Fair. We want our youth get out and network and learn from other dairy enthusiasts.
- Youth may request up to three (3) single entries per calendar year, at any show on the local, regional, state or national level that is not the Winnebago County Fair.
- Reimbursement Form
For information on community dairy-related events (not sponsored by 4-H), see our Agriculture section at: https://winnebago.extension.wisc.edu/agriculture/dairy-and-livestock/
