Dairy Leaders of Tomorrow Offers Virtual Learning and Independent Study
The next generation of dairy doesn’t look the same as it did five months ago, let alone 10 years ago. The dairy industry and the way we teach students are changing rapidly, and the future often feels unknown. To navigate these changes and continue preparing students to pursue careers in the dairy industry, many agriculture teachers are using the Dairy Leaders of Tomorrow (DLT) program. Available in a digital format with online modules that allow students to work independently at their own pace, the DLT curriculum includes three core courses that meet Common Core Educational Standards.
