Georgia Milk Producers attends several events across Georgia to promote Georgia's dairy industry among the public, youth and goverment officials. Annually we exhibit at the Governor's Ag Awareness Celebration, Sunbelt Ag Expo, State FFA Convention and the Georgia Farm Bureau Convention. Our organization also promotes the Georgia dairy industry through local newspaper advertisements each June and through internet and news media interviews.
Georgia Milk Producers also strongly supports the promotion of the dairy industry to Georgia's youth. GMP organizes and maintains administrative duties for the Georgia Dairy Youth Foundation and Georgia's Mobile Dairy Classroom.
Georgia Dairy Youth Foundation
We strongly support the dairy youth programs in Georgia through the Georgia Dairy Youth Foundation. With the help of Georgia Milk Producers, the Georgia Dairy Youth Foundation was formed in 2009 to develop and provide broad-based financial support to enhance and expand Georgia dairy youth programs held at the local, state and national levels.
