FarmFirst Dairy Cooperative > Membership > Youth Opportunities

The future of tomorrow begins with today's youth.

FarmFirst Dairy Cooperative believes in the potential of our youth and is dedicated in promoting opportunities for our youth to learn more about dairy handling and showmanship as well as future agricultural careers.

The cooperative strives to share these opportunities with our membership, to help the next generation in dairy become more involved at a young age.

  • Annual youth dairy camps are hosted by state universities including Wisconsin, Minnesota and South Dakota.
  • Kamp Kenwood is also a great youth learning event that is hosted by Wisconsin Farmer’s Union and available to youth of all ages throughout the summer, where camp attendees can learn more about the benefits that exist as a cooperative member and the value of a grassroots organization.
  • PDPW hosts their annual Stride Youth Leadership Conference in the spring, focusing on exposing youth ages 15 – 18 years old to a variety of dairy-related careers.

Interested membership youth should contact the office for available sponsorship opportunities. Registrations are often limited so members are encouraged to contact the office early in the registration period.
