"We are excited to be partnering with the Holstein Foundation on the Spring into Action Seminar to share consumer trends and show how dairy product innovation comes to life," says Nate Janssen, Vice President of Farmer Relations at DMI.
The session will focus on understanding today’s consumers, dairy innovation, and career opportunities within the food science field. Experts from DMI will lead participants through an interactive case study on a dairy product innovation during the seminar.
“The virtual format of the seminar will allow youth from across the country to come together and learn about a unique aspect of the dairy industry in a fun and engaging way,” says Kelli Dunklee, Holstein Foundation Youth Programs Specialist.
Key information from the Spring into Action Seminar will also be incorporated into the Holstein Foundation’s Dairy Bowl and Dairy Jeopardy contests in 2022. All youth with an interest in the dairy industry, Junior Holstein members, coaches, parents, and advisors are encouraged to attend the seminar.
