COVID-19

It is with sad hearts that the National 4-H Dairy Conference Planning Committee must announce the cancelation of the 2021 National 4-H Dairy Conference. This decision was not made lightly, and health and safety of attending 4-H members and leaders was central to the committee’s final determination.

Several determining factors have arisen in the last month that make the execution of this year’s conference an impossibility that jeopardizes the safety of all those that attend. National 4-H Dairy Conference prides itself on bringing together 4-H dairy enthusiasts from across the country to a central location to introduce them to careers in dairy and create opportunities for networking with other youth.  With local, university, state and national public health restrictions continuing to change related to the COVID-19 pandemic, lack of a central hotel for rooms and meals and an inability to provide the social distancing during events, the high standard of programming became unfeasible.

We look forward to seeing you again for National 4-H Dairy Conference in September 2022.
