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.


  • Offer dairy education and networking to as many as 200 students.
  • Further engage university and industry professionals in teaching contemporary dairy issues.


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.
