Delaware County 4-H Dairy Quiz Bowl Team Competes in National Contest

The Delaware County 4-H Dairy Quiz Bowl team recently represented Iowa in the National 4-H Dairy Quiz Bowl Contest in Louisville, KY.

Team members are Alia Domeyer (captain), Haley Ronnebaum, Dannielle Burkle and Bianka Ronnebaum. Coaches for the team are Jennifer Zumbach, Josh Thibadeau, Matt Hense, Amanda Engelken and James Goldsmith. There were 14 teams participating this year.

Iowa beat Georgia in the first round. They lost a tough match to Wisconsin in the second round and then lost a challenging match to North Carolina in the third round.

Coach Jennifer Zumbach said, “These ladies had fun, challenged their dairy knowledge, formed friendships with participants from other states and can be proud of how they represented Iowa and Delaware County 4-H! We as coaches have enjoyed working with them during their time in Dairy Quiz Bowl!”

The contest format includes each individual taking a 50 question test. The teams are ranked by those totals. Then the teams enter a double-elimination contest with 5 test question points being added each round to points earned from 5 team questions, 20 toss-up buzzer questions and possible bonus question points when 3 different team members answer a question correctly.

The team appreciates the financial support offered by the Ron Orth 4-H Dairy Endowment Fund.

Sponsors for the North American Invitational 4-H Dairy Quiz Bowl Contest which celebrated its 44th year this year are ADM Animal Nutrition, American Dairy Science Association, Diamond V, National Dairy Shrine, North American International Livestock Exposition, Select Sires, Inc. and W.D. Hoard & Sons Co.
