Dairy Challenge Academy
2017 North American Intercollegiate Dairy Challenge: March 30-April 1, 2017
2016 Dairy Challenge Academy: April 7-9, 2016
Started in 2013, Dairy Challenge now impacts even more students through Dairy Challenge Academy. The Academy includes sophomores, juniors and seniors in four-year dairy programs, along with students from community colleges and technical schools.
The Dairy Challenge Academy runs in conjunction with the national Dairy Challenge contest. More than 300 students – both contest participants and academy participants - start together on Thursday. That evening, the two groups part: contest participants begin the competition while Academy students continue educational work. Academy students spend the next two days working with Academy Advisors to experience first-hand how to evaluate and consult on a dairy farm.
