Holstein Foundation has been cultivating future generations through their Young Dairy Leaders Institute (YDLI) for the past 25 years. YDLI is a nationally recognized three-phase leadership and communication skills development program for young adults, ages 22-45, working in the dairy industry, with all breeds of cattle.
“We have over 600 alumni and this is a great opportunity for us to celebrate all that our alumni have achieved, relive some great YDLI moments from the past, and polish our skills for the future,” says Jodi Hoynoski, Holstein Foundation Programs Manager. “While YDLI is the reason we are hosting this exciting event, we invite anyone looking to bolster their leadership skills and network to attend!”
Friday night is held at the Farm Wisconsin Discovery Center for dinner and fellowship, with entertainment provided by the “Modern Day Drifters” country band. The Horace Backus YDLI Dairy Producer Scholarship benefit auction will also take place.
Alumni registration fee is $150, and for all other guests it is $250. That fee includes all of the events on Friday – the day program in addition to the evening event at the Farm Wisconsin Discovery Center. An “evening only” ticket for $50 includes dinner and entertainment at the Farm Wisconsin Discovery Center.
