Iowa Youth Dairy Coalition

It may not quite look like it, but Spring is almost here and with that comes the 2019 Youth Dairy Coalition! This year the event will be held on March 29th - March 30th in Dyersville, IA.

This event is designed to bring youth, ages 10-18, with an interest in the dairy industry together. This is the 25th year for the Coalition and it has had hundreds of past participants. Youth taking part in this activity not only find themselves learning about the dairy industry, but also meeting new friends and developing their leadership and communication skills.

Check-in for Youth Dairy Coalition is between 4 and 5 p.m. on Friday, March 29th in the conference room of the Comfort Inn, Dyersville, IA. Friday evening will be filled with fun, as there will be ice breakers, a butter making workshop, Quiz Bowl Competition, as well as a Dairy Judging Workshop. On Saturday, we will be touring Pleasant Grove Dairy Goats and Reuter’s Dairy Farm. We will conclude Saturday with a banquet held in the conference center at the Comfort Inn, Dyersville, IA at 1:00pm. The event will conclude at 2:00pm on Saturday.

The cost to attend this event is $20 per individual. This fee helps cover food, lodging and a t-shirt. Additional t-shirts can be purchased for an additional $10 per shirt. If parents wish to attend the banquet, please include the number of additional guests on the Youth Registration form, as well as an additional $10 per guest. Checks may be made out to the Dairy Science Club at ISU.

The address for the hotel is: 527 16th Ave SE, Dyersville, IA 52040
