This event brings students from around the southeast together to learn how to critically evaluate daily operations of a dairy farm. For this contest, each student joins a team with members from other universities. They analyze farm records, visit the dairy, interview the producer and industry experts, and then prepare a presentation on the strengths and weaknesses of the operation. Through this program, the students not only learn more about the dairy industry, but they strengthen communication and networking skills by interacting with professionals from various aspects of the dairy industry. It truly is an invaluable experience for everyone involved.
These students will have the opportunity to compete in the North American Intercollegiate Dairy Challenge or Dairy Challenge Academy in Fort Wayne, IN in the Spring.
Please congratulate these students and continue to support them in upcoming events!
