The Dairy Girl Network (DGN), an organization supporting all women in dairy by enhancing lives and creating opportunities, is seeking nominations of dairy women to join their Board of Directors!

The Dairy Girl Network Board of Directors includes elected representatives serving as dairy farmers and industry professionals.
