2020 Tri-State Dairy Nutrition Conference

Undergraduate Program

What is Tri-State Dairy Nutrition Conference?

The Tri-State Dairy Nutrition Conference is a collaborative effort between The Ohio State University, Michigan State University, Purdue University, and the allied dairy industry to provide current information about the feeding of dairy cattle to the industry.



What Undergraduate Opportunities are Included at the Conference?

Undergraduate students are encouraged to apply to the 2020 Undergraduate Program. This program is held concurrently with the Conference, but it offers special opportunities for students to network with students from other universities and professional members of the dairy industry. The undergraduate program begins on Monday, April 20 at 1:30 PM and concludes on Tuesday, April 21 at 5:30.

Benefits of Program Participation

Students accepted into the Undergraduate Program will receive a registration fee waiver, which includes all Conference materials as well as hotel accommodations for Monday and Tuesday evening. Once accepted, students MUST register for the conference and the program. Students must also request lodging reservations via this website. Students will be expected to share rooms, possibly even with students from difference institutions if necessary.


**All accepted students are expected to attend all of the events included in the Undergraduate Program. Failure to do so may result in the need for the attendee to pay for registration and lodging costs.
