4-H youth tested their knowledge in agriculture-related topics challenge on March 9 in Hastings

On March 9, 33 youth on eight teams from Mower County participated in one of four 4-H Regional Project Bowl contests. At these contests, teams of three to six youth test their knowledge on a variety of animal science and agriculture topics including dairy, dog, general livestock, horse, llama, poultry and rabbit.

Teams are quizzed in one-on-one and open rounds. The first participant with the correct answer earns points for their team. A number of teams from each Regional Project Bowl contest will continue on to the State Project Bowl competition on April 6, in Sauk Rapids.
