Registration is now open for the 2015 Michigan 4-H Dairy Conference!  The 3-day workshop takes place March 13-15, 2015 at Kettunen Center in Tustin, Mich.

The purpose of our program is to provide 4-H'ers with the opportunity to learn about Michigan agriculture, to increase their knowledge of the dairy industry in Michigan, to develop their self esteem, self awareness, and leadership skills, and to help them become more knowledgeable about the many issues affecting agriculture now and in the future. The weekend will include many hands-on activities led by MSU Extension staff and MSU faculty and students.

The theme for this year is dairy cattle health.  We will cover a broad range of topics and have experts from around the state join us for this educational event.  There will also be a Management Contest, local dairy farm tour, dairy judging workshop, and Quiz Bowl Contest to close the weekend!

Registration and more detailed information is now available

 

Please direct questions to Melissa Elischer at elischer@anr.msu.edu or 517-432-4306.

See you in March!
