Youth involved in the North Carolina Dairy Youth Program learn many important life skills as they increase their knowledge of dairy farming and the dairy industry.  They participate in various educational activities including dairy cattle type judging and evaluation, dairy quiz bowl contests, dairy poster contests, demonstrations, presentations, cumulative records projects, dairy cattle fitting and showmanship contests, junior dairy shows, and educational retreats.
