July 13, 2018 – DeLaval is once again supporting young people’s passion for dairy by donating a portion of its profits from sales of select hygiene products, liners, tubes and milking units to the 2018 National 4-H Dairy Conference. Leading dairy youth from across North America come together at the conference to build leadership skills and industry bridges that will last well into the future.
“We are proud to have supported 4-H in this way for a total of 35 years now,” says Fernando Cuccioli, DeLaval Regional President, North America. “We are directly impacting nearly 200 conference attendees who will be entering the workforce as either producers or workers within the industry. The leadership skills they gain here are sure to have a positive impact on the dairy industry as a whole.”
The National 4-H Dairy Conference takes place during World Dairy Expo (Oct 2-6, 2018). Thanks to support from producers who purchased select products leading up to the conference each year, DeLaval has donated more than $30,000 since 2016. “As a value and knowledge driven company, our view is that we need to support the dairy community, and we count on our loyal customers to help us do that. Together, we truly live milk,” Cuccioli affirms.
