National 4-H Dairy Conference

If there is one thing that I missed out on in my youth – this is IT !  Do not get me wrong, I was blessed with many opportunities in the dairy industry but somehow never made it to National 4-H Dairy Conference (https://national4hdairyconference.org/).  My goal is to make sure that other youth do not miss out!

This year’s National 4-H Dairy Conference is set for September 30th – October 3rd in Madison, WI and in conjunction with World Dairy Expo. Again this year, through the support of Milk Check-Off and Georgia Dairy Youth Foundation funds, we will support up to 3 young people to serve as GA Delegates to this tremendous event. The 2017 conference boasted opportunities for networking, development of leadership skills, numerous educational seminars, and once in a lifetime tours! Examples of the seminars and tours may be found below.

Seminars: Artificial Insemination, Dairy Foods Evaluation, Marketing, Farm Finance, Herd Mating Strategies, Feeding Calves, Precision Dairy Monitoring, Lactation Lab, Goat and Sheep Production, and Genomics!!!

Tours: Hoard’s Dairyman Guernsey Farm, ABS Global, Crave Brothers Farm and numerous other great farm tours!!!

Do not miss this opportunity if you’re even the slightest dairy enthusiast! Please click “Application Packet” below for more information.  Applications and letters of support from a county agent are due by August 6th, 2018. Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions.
