Wisconsin Ag Connection - 06/28/2022

Wisconsin will have four semi-finalists competing in the Distinguished Junior Member contest at this week's National Holstein Convention, being held this week in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

Open to any National Junior member ages 17-21, the DJM award is the highest honor that can be given to a Holstein Junior member. Only 12 members in the nation are eligible to compete in the semi-final round.

Wisconsin students in the competition include Elise Bleck, Glenbeulah; Matthew Gunst, Hartford; Hannah Hockerman, Westfield; and Brian McCullough, Juda.

Each of the semi-finalists completed an entry book, detailing their Junior Holstein project work, involvement with their cattle, program participation, and school and community activities.

The Distinguished Junior Member semi-finalists all have won the similar contest at the state level.

Meanwhile, Wisconsin will also have four members competing in the Young Distinguished Junior Member competition, which is for students between the ages of 9-16. They include Elizabeth Gunst of Hartford and Logan Harbaugh from Marion.
