HARRISBURG, Pa. — The Dairymen’s Association and Center for Dairy Excellence are offering up to four partial scholarships for Pennsylvania dairy producers to attend the Holstein Foundation’s Young Dairy Leaders Institute.

The institute is a nationally recognized three-phase leader and communication skills development program for adults ages 22-45 working in the dairy industry, with all breeds of cattle.

“YDLI helped me to recognize that there is a future in the dairy industry and it’s one that is extremely bright,” said Emily Yeiser, dairy initiatives manager at the Center for Dairy Excellence. “I was surrounded with 53 classmates and a program that renewed my passion for making a difference in the dairy industry and identified ways to do so.”

Class nine will meet Feb. 25-28, 2015, and Feb. 24-27, 2016, in Phoenix, Ariz. The application deadline is Aug. 1, and enrollment is limited to allow for increased one-on-one instruction.
