Student applications for mentor program due Nov. 17, 2019
The 2019 PDPW Mentor Program, brought to you by Professional Dairy Producers® (PDPW), connects college students from four-year universities, technical schools and the UW-Madison Short Course with active, progressive dairy farmers for a one-day job shadow and on-going mentor/mentee experience.
Since 1996, PDPW has worked to pair college students with vetted PDPW dairy farm members who volunteer to give students a boots-on-the-ground, first-hand insight into dairy farming. The experience grows students’ professional network, cultivates new ideas, and enhances hands-on learning in modern business, financial, animal care and genetics, environmental, and other human resource management practices on farm.
To become a part of the PDPW Mentor Program, students must complete the application process by November 17, 2019. PDPW will then connect students with their host farm by November 25.
Professional Dairy Producers (PDPW) is the nation’s largest dairy producer-led organization of its kind, focusing on producer professionalism, stakeholder engagement and unified outreach to share ideas, solutions, resources and experiences that help dairy producers succeed.
