Genesee County 4-H Dairy Club members recently participated in the Finger Lakes Regional 4-H Dairy Quiz Bowl Contest. There were several rounds of competition that tested the youths’ knowledge of the dairy industry, dairy products, farming, government, and bovine anatomy. Youth were given individual questions, followed by team questions where they could work as a group to answer. Each round ended with toss-up questions where the quickest participant to buzz in was given the chance to answer.  

In the Beginner Division, Genesee/Wayne/Seneca was the first place team. Members included Tate Zuber – eighth-place individual (Genesee), Connor Schultz, Julianna Smith, and Josiah Freier (Wayne/Seneca). Team Genesee/Cayuga placed second with members Chase Zuber – sixth-place individual (Genesee), Sam Patterson, Austin Hunter, and Katherine Atherton (Cayuga).

Team Genesee/Monroe placed first in the Junior Division. Members were Bing Zuber – sixth-place individual (Genesee), Justin Deleo – seventh-place individual (Genesee), and Owen Avedisian (Monroe). Other Genesee County Junior Participants were Mason Werth, Maggie Winspear, and Jillian Brewer.

Team Genesee/Seneca placed third in the Senior Division with members Amelia Brewer (Genesee), Ian Keberle – sixth place individual (Genesee), and Dale Freier (Seneca).
