Dougherty Participates in National 4-H Dairy Conference

Madison, WI- A delegation of hundreds of 4-H’ers enjoyed several days of fun and learning during the 59th annual National 4-H Dairy Conference on the University of Wisconsin campus in Madison, September 29-October 2, 2013. The educational program attracted approximately 200 youth and adult delegates from across the U.S.A. and Canada.
The delegation included Andy Dougherty, Epworth and a member of the Farley Wranglers 4-H Club. They were selected from a field of applicants to attend the conference based on past experience, knowledge and interest in the dairy industry. “It was a lot of fun and a valuable learning experience,” said Dougherty. “It was a great opportunity to learn more about the dairy industry and I really enjoyed meeting new people.”
The four-day experience exposed 4-H members to new dairy science technology and dairy-related careers. Through a combination of workshops, speakers, educational off-site experiences, and networking with other dairy-oriented youth, 4-H members gained information they could use to strengthen their futures in the dairy industry. Hands-on learning workshop topics included biotechnology, genetics, foods evaluation, animal nutrition and marketing.
