Plans are underway
for the 75th Annual MMPA 4-H Milk Marketing Tour. The two-day event is
designed to offer students information about Michigan’s dairy industry,
milk marketing and cooperatives. We invite 4-H members, FFA members and
other young people interested in the dairy industry and/or milk
marketing that are 15-18 years old (age as of Jan. 1, 2012) to
participate in this fun and educational event. You do not have to belong
to 4-H or FFA to attend the tour.
Adults may also attend the tour as chaperones. MMPA does not require a chaperone to attend the tour with a participant but we do encourage chaperones to attend, especially if a county is sending a large group.
MMPA provides all registration fees, lodging and meals. The only cost to participate is your transportation to Novi. Registration is due June 5 and will be limited to the first 30 students who sign up. Any student that has attended the tour before is not eligible to participate again. If you have any questions regarding the tour, contact Dr. Joe Domecq, Extension Dairy Youth Specialist at (517) 353-7855 or the MMPA Member Relations Department at (248) 474-6672.
