Mission Statement

To facilitate education, communication and an exchange of ideas among students, agribusiness, dairy producers and universities that enhances the development of the dairy industry and its leaders.

Inspiring Tomorrow's Dairy Leaders Today

There's now one event that brings together the best and the brightest collegiate students who are diligently studying for a career in the dairy industry: The North American Intercollegiate Dairy Challenge. NAIDC is a unique two-day competition among teams representing North American universities' dairy science programs. The competition challenges those institutions to inspire their students with a high quality education - empowering them with the resources for real-world success. This challenge incorporates all facets of a working dairy business in a forum that's interactive, educational and fun. The NAIDC is the competition for tomorrow's dairy leaders.

The Challenge

The North American Intercollegiate Dairy Challenge allows dairy science students to apply theory and learning to a real-world dairy while working as part of a team.

Day one begins with each four-person student team receiving information on a real-life dairy, including production and farm management data. Following an operation evaluation, teams develop a comprehensive program including recommendations for nutrition, reproduction, milking procedures, animal health, housing and financial management. The first day concludes with an informal dinner with NAIDC sponsors.

Day two is a presentation day, where team members present recommendations to a panel of judges. Competition is stiff, and team members must field questions from the judges. Presentations are evaluated based on the analysis and recommendations. The evening concludes with a reception and awards banquet.

Year after year, Dairy Challenge benefits the students, the universities, dairy producers and agribusiness - the dairy industry as a whole - as it generates prospective employees who are more experienced and knowledgeable, and will be better prepared to serve the industry of the future.
