4-H Dairy Competitions


The object of the fair is to supplement and encourage junior activities as organized by 4-H Ontario. It is also to improve the educational value of the fair, and to develop new exhibitors for the future, by stimulating the interest of young people in the fair.

We encourage exhibitors to follow the 4-H motto of “Learn to Do By Doing”.
