Dairy Jeopardy

spacer
Dairy Jeopardy is a dairy knowledge competition that allows youth to compete as individuals. Styled after the popular television game show, questions are similar to those asked in Dairy Bowl. The contestants demonstrate their ability to think on their feet and wager points based on their knowledge of topics ranging from "Bovine Health" and "Breed All About It" (questions about the different breeds of dairy cattle) to "Milk Marketing" and "The Tanbark Trail."

Dairy Jeopardy is an exciting event that brings together youth interested in agriculture. Participants have the opportunity to gain knowledge about the dairy industry while making rewarding and lasting friendships along the way.

Tips for Preparing for a Dairy Jeopardy Competition

  • Watch the television show "Jeopardy." Observe how contestants wager for Bonus Questions and Final Jeopardy.
  • Learn the questions from the Holstein Foundation Web site. Each question refers to a specific article in one of the Dairy Jeopardy resources. Read each article – there may be additional information you need to familiarize yourself with regarding the subject matter.
  • Study the questions from previous Dairy Jeopardy and Dairy Bowl contests that are located on the Holstein Foundation Web site.
  • Review the list of Dairy Jeopardy resources and review as many of the materials as you can. Study progressively throughout the year so you don't have to learn information in a short period of time.
  • Read the rules and regulations thoroughly.
  • Create a list of abbreviations, diseases, famous people, cows, places, etc. This will help you learn the material in a non-question format, which could be very beneficial.
