Applications are now available to Wisconsin youth who are interested in attending the National 4-H Dairy Conference in Madison, Wis. from Sept. 29 to Oct. 2.

Each year approximately 200 delegates from across the USA and Canada attend this conference which coincides with World Dairy Expo.

Participants learn about dairy production, dairy food processing, marketing and use of dairy products, and develop a broader understanding of careers available in the dairy industry.

The conference consists of participatory workshops on the University of Wisconsin - Madison campus, speakers, tours, visiting the World Dairy Expo, and is a great opportunity to network with current and future dairy industry leaders.

To be eligible to attend this conference youth must be in grades 10-12 as of January 1, 2013, must be a 4-H member in good standing enrolled in the dairy project area and must not be exhibiting animals at the 2013 World Dairy Expo.
