Interested in learning and practicing skills to join the next generation of communicators for Wisconsin’s livestock and dairy industry? Mark your calendar for the 'Ag Truths, Not Tails' conference, coordinated by the University of Wisconsin-Extension.

Enrollment is open to youth ages 13 to one year past high school in dairy, beef, sheep, swine and goat project areas. The conference will be held Jan. 25-26, (Friday night stay and social activities are optional) at the Upham Woods 4-H Environmental Education Center in Wisconsin Dells.

Bring a team of youth and adults to these interactive networking sessions focused on animal welfare, led by leaders in the livestock and dairy industry.

Enrollment closes Jan. 16. This is a great opportunity for county educational credits. For more information, visit the conference website. Registration materials can be found here
