The annual Dairy Discovery program provides New York youth with fun, hands-on science-oriented learning experiences in dairy production and management topics that feature the unique facilities, industry professionals, and staff at Cornell University.

The statewide program for youth ages 14 to 19 years-old is held one Saturday in March. Youth learn about dairy careers by rotating through a series of hands-on stations that focus on specific aspects of the dairy industry. Dairy Discovery workshop topics changes each year but include: Dairy Herd Health and Management, Calf and Heifer Production Management, Quality Milk and Milk Production, Whole Farm Management Planning, and Maximizing the Feed Management Program.

Participation is limited to the first 75 youth who enroll by deadline because of the hands-on approach.
