VALE – The hundreds of cows at Dairylain Farms got a visit from hundreds of students in Malheur County's FFA clubs Wednesday, Sept. 4. Students, from high schools in Vale, Ontario, Nyssa, Harper, Adrian and Jordan Valley, gathered around curious Jersey cows for the District Dairy Judging Contest.

Owned by Warren and Lori Chamberlain, the dairy farm opens its doors to Malheur County students every year for a tour of the facility and the annual competition. After learning about the robot feeders and automatic milking operation at the farm, students got a chance to test what they learned while judging four different classes of cows. Below are the winners.
