PAGE 3 VOLUME IV ISSUE II 2011 Ayrshire Convention News from your Florida Youth Dairy Ambassador Pamela Mayo The past couple of months have been filled with exciting events throughout Florida in relation to the Florida Dairy Industry. These events ranged from state fairs to visiting smaller groups and organizations to educate them on the Florida Dairy Industry and attending the Florida Dairy Production Conference held in Gainesville, Florida. While at the Florida State Fair I participated in judging competitions and showing dairy cattle; which became the perfect opportunity to reach out and answer questions the average consumer and public had pertaining to the dairy industry. After the fairs slowly came to an end I visited a local Girl Scout troop that was curious on where exactly their milk came from and the nutritional value it contained that would help them later in life. Alongside the fairs and visits I attended the Florida Dairy Production Conference that was held at the end of March. At the conference I met many new and helpful faces that will be continued resources to expand my knowledge on the industry. Many of which already make great contributions to the dairy community. In attending the conference I gained a wider variety of information that has further developed my perspective on the Florida Dairy Industry. As the youth dairy ambassador I look forward to more events such as these in the upcoming weeks, alongside presentations pertaining to the industry to the consumer and public. The 2011 Ayrshire Convention which was held June 25 July 2 in Hagerstown, MD. The Florida Quiz Bowl Teams that competed at the National Ayrshire Convention did an outstanding job. The Junior Team took 1st place. Team members were Alex Pluskot, Ross Laskey and Billy Bob Wehde. The Senior Team was 2nd place and team members were Fallon Curren, William Curren, Austin Pluskot & Raychel Rabon! Special thanks to Dianne Spann, Kim Pluskot & Robin Laskey for working with and accompanying to convention! The teams had a great time touring historic Washington, DC and also catching some MLB action! Congrats again to these youth!
