The Dairy Heifer Project

October 16, 2019 - Posted in Making it Grow by Sean Flynn

The Heifer Dairy Project began in 1974 and was designed to provide boys and girls who have non-dairy backgrounds an opportunity to raise a dairy heifer and experience the dairy industry. We follow 4H 12 year old twin girls Madelyn and Logan Bolin of Clover, SC as they first receive their cows at the Clemson Spring Dairy Weekend. Then, we visit them over the summer to see the day to day responsibilities for caring for the cows. Finally, we watch them compete in the SC State Fair Dairy Cow Show and also as they auction off their cows they received the previous year.
