GLRDC Bag Packing
Club members helped to stuff the bags for the upcoming Great Lakes Regional Dairy Conference.
Nearly 15 members travelled to the Midwest ADSA-SAD conference at Kalahari Resort in Wisconsin. We competed in various competitions including quiz bowl, scrapbook, yearbook, and website. Members got valuable networking experience and the chance to meet with other midwest colleges dairy clubs!
Great Lakes Regional Dairy Conference
Our awards banquet is held in conjunction with GLRDC. Awards are passed out, judging teams are recognized, and outstanding advisors are appointed.
Members faced off in the Zap Zone! Some people were shot (all survived) and victors were named in a fierce battle of electronic fun.
Spartan Spectacular Calf Sale
This is our biggest event and one of our two big fundraisers. Calves are consigned for auction and partial funds go to the dairy club and judging teams. This is held in conjunction with the Michigan-Indiana Spring Foundation Sale.
Club members really enjoy educating the youth about agriculture at this event. Both the real cow and the mascot were a huge hit and all of the kids as well as their parents had fun learning about dairy.
Dairy Day at The Rock
Every year the Dairy Club camps out at the MSU rock, and paints it in a promotion of Dairy Club. Additionally, during the day the club passes out dairy promotional items, dairy products, and has calves present for the public to enjoy.
As is tradition with most college organizations, the MSU Dairy Club hosts a bar crawl in conjunction with Block and Bridle. Members of age get to have a good time going around to the many bars located in East Lansing.
Small Animals Day
The annual event held by the College of Ag and Natural Resources brings all of the animal ag clubs (along with a few camels!) to teach the public about animal agriculture. Kids also get the chance to milk a cow.
Bye Bye BBQ
The last meeting of the year was full of laughter and a few tears. We cooked hamburgers and hot dogs, held mock elections, and welcomed the new E-Board!
