National 4-H Dairy Conference – Call for Applications

The National 4-H Dairy Conference is rapidly approaching (October 1st – 4th). This is a tremendous opportunity for a GA Youth with an interest in the dairy industry to learn, explore, and network with some of the best and brightest the industry has to offer from across the nation! Each year, Georgia sends 2-3 youth to participate in this national event.  During 2016, GA dairy youth were able to:

  •  Tour ABS Global, National Dairy Shrine, Crave Brothers Cheese, and the Hoard’s Dairyman Farm
  • Attend Seminars on Dairy Cattle Reproduction, Farm Finances, Dairy Products, Calves, Genetics, and Dairy Goats and Sheep
  • Develop leadership skills related to networking, organizing, and hosting such events

This year we are again offering to pay the registration and travel of 2-3 Georgia Youth with activity in dairy projects through 4-H and outside of 4-H.  Please reference the letter and application below and note that applications are due back on August 14th!!!
