The All-American Dairy Show and Premier National Jr. Show will return to Harrisburg for the 59th year at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex and Expo Center. The event will feature four days of competitions from Sunday, September 17 through Wednesday, September 20, highlighting more than 1,500 youth and adult contenders from across the U.S.

The Shapiro Administration is proud to support this event, which is part of the administration's commitment to growing and sustaining Pennsylvania's dairy industry. The 2023-24 Pennsylvania budget includes robust investments supporting Pennsylvania's dairy industry, including $250,000 for the All-American Dairy Show.

Pennsylvania is a leader in production of ice cream, butter, and Swiss cheese, and has the second largest number of dairy farms in the U.S. The state's dairy industry provides more than 47,000 jobs and supports the commonwealth's economy to the tune of $11.8 billion annually.

The 2023 All-American Dairy Show will feature nearly 1,500 national youth and adult competitors exhibiting more than 1,900 of the finest dairy cattle in the industry, as well as youth dairy management, showmanship and judging competitions that hone the skills of tomorrow's dairy producers.

Competitions begin Sunday, September 17 at 8:30 a.m., with the Youth Showmanship contest, in which youth are judged on their breed knowledge and livestock-handling. Also on Sunday, the Invitational Youth Dairy Cattle Youth Judging Contest brings youth and collegiate teams from across the U.S. to demonstrate their poise under pressure and knowledge of what makes top cattle in each breed. Contests conclude with the Supreme Dairy Pageant on Wednesday, September 20 beginning at 2:00 p.m.

All-American Dairy Show events are open to the public. Events run daily beginning at 8:00 a.m. throughout the Farm Show Complex. Parking and admission are free.
