If you are aged 16 to 21 years old, work or have an interest in the dairy industry or are looking to pursue a dairy career then make sure to apply for the National Dairy Youth Camp before the cut-off date of 8th March.
Organised by Holstein Australia on behalf of the wider dairy industry, the camp is open to members of all breed societies and associations as well as those with no previous dairy experience.
The camp will take place from the afternoon of Friday 12th April until lunchtime Tuesday 16th April at the Sale Showgrounds in Victoria. Camp activities will include animal health, husbandry, showmanship and judging sessions, plus seminars on AI, breeding programs, marketing and dairy career pathways. A number of industry experts will also be on hand, with a classification demonstration and mock auction taking place, as well as a visit to the Maffra Cheese Company and evening BBQs and events.
The application form can be downloaded. See the attached form.
The cost of the camp is $300 + GST and includes all accommodation, food, insurances and camp activities. A sibling discount applies where there is more than one attendee from the same family.
