The Southwestern Wisconsin Cheese Makers Association (SWCMA) has announced that it will offer its 8th Annual Young Dairy Producer Educational Scholarship. This is an individual scholarship to allow a young dairy producer to pursue dairy production educational opportunities.
This year's scholarship amount will again be for $2,000 to further encourage young dairy producers to continue in the dairy industry, and help maintain the supply of milk to area cheese plants.
All students whose Wisconsin-based dairy farm markets their milk to any SWCMA member plant is eligible to apply. A member list is included with the application form. Family members or farm employee family members are both eligible to apply for this scholarship.
Applications are due March 31.
