Welcome to the 94th annual Hoard’s Dairyman Cow Judging Contest. You and your family, students or club members are invited to join the thousands of others who participate in this fun and educational picture judging contest.

This interactive web-based portal contains all five classes, and allows you to submit your entries online and receive your scores by email at the completion of the contest.

Cash prizes and framed certificates are awarded to winning individuals and groups. Also, each team member who is part of a group entry is eligible for individual prizes.

Many of our colleagues use this contest to train dairy judging teams during the winter months. It’s ideal for the classroom, and students’ families will enjoy it, too. People may enter with their chapter, club, college, agribusiness/co-op and also with their families.

This year’s contest entry deadline is Monday, March 25, 2024 .
