4-H'ers attend Gopher Dairy Camp The 10th Annual Gopher Dairy Camp was held June 9-11, on the University of Minnesota - St. Paul Campus. Gopher Dairy Camp was a fun 3-day workshop for teens wanting to improve their dairy cat- tle skills. The camp was open to all youth who have completed grades 6-11. Activities included: Dairy Fit- ting and Showmanship Workshops, a Dairy Showmanship Contest, the Gopher Gold Auction, a Dairy Foods Workshop, fun at a water- park, a pizza party, games, and an awards banquet. All of these activ- ities provided great opportunities to gain new knowledge that will last a lifetime. Campers also meet other youth interested in dairy cattle from across the state, many of which become lifelong friends. Meeker County 4-H'ers in attendance included: Katherine Gathje of Richmond, Arnie Gru- enes of Richmond, Shelby Kuechle of Eden Valley, Greg Lux of Eden Valley, and Tim Lux of Eden Valley.
