All month long, the North Carolina Cooperative Extension Service is celebrating June Dairy Month!
Marti Day, Mithyus Campbell and Miles Foxx are joining the Good Morning Show on Saturday to explain fun events happening.
On Saturday, June 10th there will be a celebration of dairy farmers and dairy foods at the Piedmont Triad Farmers' Market from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Ice cream connoisseurs are invited to participate in the homemade ice cream churn-off! There's a youth and adult division with the first prize being $75 and second prize being $50.
Price says the North Carolina Dairy Producers Association sponsored the event this year.
There will also be a cow, games and other prizes at the event!
Another event happening is the 4-H Calf Project at the Dairy Farm at NC A&T.
The NC Cooperative Extension is borrowing heifer calves from the research dairy and involving kids from several inner city schools to participate. The kids will teach their calves to lead on a halter, walk and stand quietly and then prepare them for the show.
Next month, the Greensboro District Junior Dairy Show is happening on July 20th and 21st.
It's happening in the old gambrel-roofed Guernsey Gold dairy barn at the Cooperative Extension Center at 3308 Burlington Road in Greensboro.
Kids will bring their calves to join the rest of the 4-H dairy kids who will show their calves.
