Warren County 4-H dairy members have qualified to attend the district dairy show to be held Saturday, Aug. 31, in Crawford County.

Members that will represent the county include Maya Weis from Columbus; Elle Curtis and Taige Peterson from Corry; Madison Sleeman, Hialeah Stanton, and Tristen Wilcox of Russell; Aiden, Caleb, Porter and Roman Kafferlin of Spring Creek; and Owen Miller of Spartansburg.

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.
