Dairy Cow Camp

May 24 - 26, 2017
Robthom Dairy Farms
Springfield, MO

Missouri 4-H Dairy Camp is an exciting event sponsored by University of Missouri Extension. Extension staff, along with professional fitters and volunteers, will provide educational seminars. Participants will be guided through the basics and finer points of fitting dairy cattle. Youth will work in small groups receiving individual assistance. Cattle and equipment will be provided, but if you have your own grooming equipment such as clippers or dryers, you are encouraged to bring it. There are prizes for judging and showmanship.

Registration fee for 4-H members is $90 if postmarked by April 15. After that registration is $100. Enrollment is limited to the first 40 complete registrations. Please see our flyer for more details and registration information.

Rooms in the same area as the campers will be available for parents at a cost of $80.00 per night; you must pre-register by April 15. Continental breakfast is provided by the motel. For adults wishing to eat at the farm donations will be accepted. If parents or others wish to join the camp group at Incredible Pizza, it is $12 for each adult and $10 for each additional child. Please indicate on your registration if you plan to attend so that we can make appropriate arrangements.

Each participant will receive:

  • Lodging & meals
  • T-shirt
  • Grooming Supplies
  • Project Notebook
  • Transportation to and from Robthom Dairy
