Dairy Judging Team Nets Funds

24 June 2008

URBANA, US - More than $14,000 was raised to support University of Illinois dairy judging team activities and scholarships during a recent golf outing, reports Bob Sampson.

The fifth annual Illini Dairy Judging Team Golf Outing was held June 13 at Savoy, providing team members, friends, and alumni to get together and raise funds for the team. Ninety-six golfers completed the event. Prizes were sponsored by the Midwest Dairy Association.

Several items were sold at the live and silent auctions, netting over $4,000. U of I football coach Ron Zook spoke at the barbeque held at the golf outing's conclusion, relating his days in dairying as a youth and talking about the future of the football team.
