On November 5th, the North American International Livestock Exposition in Louisville, Ky. held its annual North American 4-H Invitational Dairy Quiz Bowl. Florida 4-H Youth Development Program's Florida 4-H Dairy program was represented with a team of youth from Okeechobee County 4-H and Manatee County 4-H.
Team members included John McGehee, Michael Fioretto, Cady McGehee, and Jacob McGehee. The team advanced to the final rounds and placed 3rd Overall in the contest. Individually John McGehee placed 4th and Michael Fioretto received an honorable mention for placing 11th within the written test used for seeding with 19 teams from across the country competing.
Congratulations to these outstanding youth on even more accomplishments within dairy from the Sunshine State to the Bluegrass State.
