Applications are now open for Georgia Dairy Youth Foundation Junior Board members. 4-H and FFA students between 9th and 11th grades with an interest in dairy are eligible for this board. The Georgia Dairy Youth Foundation’s mission is to provide broad-based financial support for Georgia dairy youth. The Jr. Board supports this mission.
