Any 4-H or FFA member, age 9-17, can raise and show a registered dairy heifer in the South Carolina Dairy Heifer Project. This 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. Project members learn how to care for, manage, train, and show their animal while exploring the world of dairy cattle for 18 months. At the conclusion of the project all the heifers are sold at the South Carolina Dairy Bred Heifer Sale before they begin milking. For more information read the Project Handbook.
