The following statement can be attributed to Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation President Jim Holte:
“Young people have a desire to learn and implement new technology or better management practices to make their work more efficient, productive and sustainable. Investing in learning opportunities for these students will be a win for both the students and the dairy community. That is why Wisconsin Farm Bureau is thrilled about the new dairy scholarship program recently unveiled by Wisconsin Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection Secretary Sheila Harsdorf.
Not only is this program reaching those who work on dairy farms, it is also supporting those who work or are interested in processing, development and promotion.
The dairy community itself contributes $43.4 billion to Wisconsin’s economy each year and this scholarship program will help ensure professionals in this industry have the knowledge and skills to keep ‘America’s Dairyland’ viable and sustainable for years to come.”

These are not scholarships offered through WFBF. The Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection should have more information for you.

I am coordinating local scholarships for our seniors at Big Foot High School in Walworth. Do you have links and/or copies of the applications for scholarships you offer? I would like to post it on our Class of 2019 website.
