For members who want to learn more about dairy animals and who may want to care for and raise one (or more) female dairy animal.

Dairy Heifer Replacement Program

BCF Jr Livestock Market Sale

Is the dairy cattle project right for you?

There are six different dairy breeds to choose from with many pluses for each breed. They come in many sizes and colors, all have unique personalities and can be very gentle. Now you can learn about dairy cattle without having to actually deal with having to milk the cow. Boulder County 4-H gives you the opportunity to be able to raise/buy a dairy replacement heifer (DRH) that you can sell at the Livestock Market Sale at the county fair. It’s simple, just look over the following rules, and apply. For any further questions or dairies willing to work with members call: Tina Pohlmann @ (303) 828-3789.

While the team here still aims to maintain a “business as usual” approach, we are making a number of significant changes to our operations to account for a situation that is far from normal.
