The involvement of youth in the Ayrshire breed is the entire focus of the National Ayrshire Youth Program, sponsored by the National Ayrshire Youth Committee. Recognizing the integral part youth play in the future development of the Ayrshire breed, numerous programs have been developed to interest all ages of Ayrshire enthusiasts. These programs are specifically designed to facilitate leadership development, as well as foster a myriad of educational opportunities for their successful future in the dairy industry.
