Team From Black College Wins Gold at Dairy Competition

Students from historically black Alabama A&M University won the Gold Award at the National North American Intercollegiate Dairy Challenge in Visalia, California. The students from Alabama A&M competed in the five-day event against dairy teams from 28 universities in the United States and two from Canada.

Participating teams in the competition received information on a real-life dairy, including production and farm management data. Following an operation evaluation, the teams developed a comprehensive program including recommendations for nutrition, reproduction, milking procedures, animal health, and housing and financial management. The teams then presented their plans to a panel of judges for evaluation.
