The members qualified for the district show by participating in one of the dairy clubs in the Warren County 4-H program. Members are required to attend meetings, participate in a club community service, present a speech to their club, and complete 4-H dairy project books. Additionally members participate in their club round-up which is held in conjunction with the Warren County Fair. The 4-H dairy members are judged on showmanship, fitting, and the type of dairy animal they are showing.
