We are excited to offer a hands-on in-person Dairy Discovery this year! Please note that this year’s program will be one day, March 26th, at Cornell University in Morrison Hall.  We will be taking a whole-farm approach to the workshops in 2022 and touch on many different aspects of dairy management. Youth will rotate through three stations in the morning and three stations in the afternoon. The 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.

Participation is limited to the first 75 youth who enroll by deadline because of the hands-on approach. Youth who are 14 to 19 years of age on January 1 of the program year and have an interest in dairy cattle and production management are eligible and strongly encouraged to attend (with their parents or chaperones). This program is not limited to any organization, 4-H project members, FFA youth, and others with a dairy interest or desire to learn about dairy are all welcome.

As we return to in-person events, the health and safety of attendees, sponsors, speakers, and staff is the highest priority. As of January 24, proof of negative test results or vaccination is required by Cornell to be shown at check-in. Masking will be required by all attendees, regardless of vaccination status. Cornell recommends a single use surgical or K/N95 mask instead of a cloth mask.

Cost will be $25 per youth and $10 per adult chaperone.
