What breed of rabbit has a compact body type? Where did Berkshire swine originate? What are the wing feathers on a chicken called?

These are a few of the topics the Douglas County 4-H Project Bowl members have been studying and practicing the last few months.

4-H Project Bowl allows youth to study their chosen project more in depth to learn as much as they can about nutrition, breeds, care, genetics, body, conditioning and more.

Minnesota 4-H Project Bowl is the second-largest 4-H event after the Minnesota State Fair. Patterned after the golden oldies television show College Bowl, it challenges teams of three to six youth on their knowledge of certain 4-H project areas.

Seven teams from Douglas County 4-H participated in regional Project Bowl events in Foley, Bemidji and Redwood Falls.
