This event is open to all 4-H members who are interested in learning how their animals rate, what they need to do to improve the quality and appearance of not only their animals but in the handlers, as well regarding showmanship.

This event is especially helpful to those exhibitors that are planning to enter their animals in the Wisconsin State Fair.

The Sheboygan County Fair is scheduled after the state fair, so these pointers and practice help the members be better prepared while at the state fair.

She has been exhibiting cattle for many years and understands the importance of learning how to improve and be receptive to constructive criticism.

This year the Dairy Project opted to not give ribbons, but Judge Jeff Brantmeier from Sherwood in Calumet County did rate the animals and placed them in descending order.

He then gave his reasons as to why they were placed in said order.

Ringmaster Jim Heinen helped the handlers with difficult animals when it was necessary.

The Overall Junior Champion was Savanna Ridge and the Overall Reserve Junior Champion was Elise Bleck.

The top Showmanship award for members between the ages of 16-19 years old was Jess Mullikin.

Other handlers in that group were Andy Helmer, Erica Helmer, Ashley Oberreich and Jimmy Jens.

The top Showmanship award for members 12-15 years old was Cole Booth.

Other handlers in that group were Elise Bleck, Sarah Henschel, Brett Mullikin, Jared VanderWeele, Shaun Jens, Holly Obbereich, Derick Wilterdink, Zoe Ertel and Savanna Ridge.

The top Showmanship Award for members 11 years and under was Ava Booth.

Other handlers in that group were Carson Anhalt, Austin Henschel, Ben Widder, Ella Bindl, Brad Buckman, Dakota Kreisa, Brady Bleck, Parker Glander and Nathan Wagner.

It was reported that all the members of both the Senior and Intermediate Showmanship Division will be representing the Sheboygan County 4-H Dairy Program at the 2015 Wisconsin State Fair.
