Since 1954, more than 10,000 young people have been impacted by the National 4-H Dairy Conference. Do you want to join us in changing the way these youth think about dairy and careers in this industry?
Why should you get involved?
National 4-H Dairy Conference is a well-established, youth-oriented event that not only exposes attending 4-H members to production and processing of dairy products, but also highlights vocational and professional opportunities in the industry.
Our sponsors help us provide cutting edge educational sessions, speakers, and tours. Students leave this conference emboldened to pursue new opportunities in dairy and with a network to help them achieve those goals.
“I loved everything but what I loved the most was the opportunity to learn about different aspects of the dairy industry. Coming from the south there is not a strong dairy presence so I got to see many new things. I would encourage anyone who could come or could help with the National Dairy conference to do so. The dairy conference opens so many opportunities for the young people who will be running the future of the dairy industry.”
-Lauren Bryant, 2022 National 4-H Dairy Conference delegate
“The National 4-H Dairy Conference is amazing in so many ways. Not only was I able to meet people who share the same passion as me from all around the United States and Canada but, we explored so many different careers and opportunities for our futures. Meeting new people and building more confidence in myself is how conference changed me. I believe the National Dairy Conference gives youth a deeper passion and builds their community. I am extremely thankful for all the sponsors and speakers that make conference happen every year.”
