The dairy youth program at Michigan State University focuses on providing educational opportunities to Michigan youth who are interested in the dairy industry.
The Michigan State University dairy youth program has a long and respected history of offering hands-on and practical skill-building learning experiences. From interacting in classroom-type learning sessions to competing in contests that test one’s knowledge about dairy-related subjects relative to peers, young people often credit the program with helping them develop and hone personal and professional skills. Participating in dairy youth programs at the local and state levels provides a platform for youth to improve public speaking skills, nurture leadership qualities, and sharpen critical thinking and problem-solving skills. Young people also have chances to work together, learn how to more effectively exchange ideas and communicate with others to achieve a common goal.
Participating in MSU dairy youth programs fosters the development of useful personal and in-demand professional skills – building blocks for young people to pursue successful careers in dairy industry-related careers.
