Area Animal Science Day
June 23, 2017 @ 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM
Area Animal Science Day is an event where youth in the beef, dairy, horse, sheep and swine projects increase their decision making skills and knowledge of animals through judging and grading experiences. Events include evaluation of dairy cattle, horses and meat animals; dairy showmanship contests; hippology (the study of horses); and oral reasons workshops. In addition, each site offers a variety of workshops for small animal projects, which may include rabbits, poultry, dogs, cats or llamas. Area Animal Science Days strives to increase the availability of educational opportunities in the 4-H Animal Science Projects, increase decision making skills through judging and grading experiences, and increase the knowledge of animals through breeding and market evaluation and management information. Thank-you to the sponsors who help make AASD possible; The Wisconsin 4-H Foundation, UW-Extension, UW-Madison Animal Science Department, and UW-Madison Dairy Science Department.
