Mentoring youth has been a flagship program area since the inception of PRO-DAIRY and is critical to build the next generation of farm owners and managers. A cornerstone of the program is Junior DAIRY LEADER. Participation in Junior DAIRY LEADER is highly competitive and 30 selected youth, ages 16 to 19, build enthusiasm for the dairy industry through a year of experiential learning, where personal and professional development is fostered in a networking environment, and the diversity of career options in agriculture are discovered. 

The Junior DAIRY LEADER class of 2023 Formal Presentation ceremony and light lunch reception to follow is an opportunity to show our appreciation to the great sponsors and supporters of the program. In addition to saying “thank you,” the DAIRY LEADERS will present highlights of their program year and what they have learned.
