Wisconsin Ag Connection - 01/17/2018

The University of Wisconsin-Madison is in the process of looking for volunteers and mentors for the upcoming Midwest Dairy Challenge, slated to be held in Madison on February 7-9. Organizers say they they are building a list of volunteers to help with the event by working directly with the students.

Dairy Challenge is a prominent educational competition for students planning a career in the dairy industry. Over 100 dairy students from 12 four-year colleges and six technical schools are expected to participate.

"We can really use your assistance as a Mentor for this years event," said Tom Vander Heiden. "We will be hosting 24 teams this year, 120 students."

Each team of students put textbook knowledge to the ultimate test--providing solutions for a dairy. Student participants will be assigned to teams, working with students from other colleges whom they are meeting for the first time.
