Feeding the Future of Dairy Farming

Feeding the Future of Dairy Farming (FFDF) is a unique opportunity for students to gain exposure to dairy farming and agriculture career opportunities in Arizona. Students will expand their knowledge of dairy farming as they develop business and leadership skills. The ultimate goal is for students to consider careers in dairy, agriculture, and supporting industries.

Over a 14-week period, students will attend educational modules at leading dairy farms in Arizona and complete a final project based on their learnings. Top performers in the program will have opportunity to earn scholarships to local Arizona colleges.
