One of three Youth Dairy Days across the state will be held at the Indiana County Fairgrounds, 803 Hospital Road, Indiana, on June 10.

The event, scheduled for 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., is designed for young people ages 5-18 who want to learn more about careers in the dairy industry.

The Penn State Extension Dairy Team will focus on the science of modern dairy farming and good management practices. Topics will include quality animal management, forage quality, cheese making, pesticide safety, pregnancy and reproductive efficiency.

The event is free but registration is required. Deadline is June 5.

A parent/guardian or designated chaperone is required to remain throughout the day with youth under the age of 8. Instructors will be Penn State Extension educators.

The other Youth Dairy Days are being held June 18 in Shippensburg and June 20 in Huntingdon.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
