Wisconsin Ag Connection - 02/09/2018

Entries are now being taken for the Livestock Quiz Bowl Competition and Skillathon contest later this winter. The event will be held March 3 at the University of Wisconsin-Madison Animal Sciences Department.

Livestock Bowl is a quiz competition where all the questions are about beef, sheep, swine, and meat goat topics and students use a buzzer in order to answer the questions. Teams compete in a double elimination format by giving oral answers to questions posed by a moderator. Each match has both an individual and toss-up question round. The teams are divided into three age divisions. The junior division is made up of four members who are under 14 years of age as of January 1. The senior division is for teams of four members who are all 14 years of age or older as of January 1. A mixed team must contain at least one youth from each age division.

Competition in Livestock Quiz Bowl encourages member to develop a more complete knowledge of animals and related subjects. This contest provides an educational program for all project members, including those who may not own a project animal, and provides a way to develop self-confidence.

Meanwhile, the Skillathon contest is made up of a written quiz and learning stations such as breed identification, feed identification, equipment identification as well as some team activities such as demonstrating evaluation skills. The top Senior level 4-H team will represent Wisconsin at the National 4-H Skillathon Contest, held each fall in Louisville.
