Each June, we kick off summer with a reminder of the health benefits that nutrient-rich dairy foods provide, while thanking dairy producers for their year-round dedication.
Originally designated ‘National Milk Month’ in 1937, the focus of this annual holiday evolved from promoting milk sales to recognizing the contributions made by the nation’s dairy industry as a whole.
June offers many opportunities to celebrate and educate yourself about the importance of our nation’s dairy industry. Attending a farm breakfast is a great way to get a firsthand glimpse of local agriculture and learn about the recent innovations in the dairy industry. Our nation’s hard-working dairy professionals are more than happy to answer questions about their animals as well as the measures taken to ensure their livestock and crops are well cared for. Bring the whole family for some delicious food and farm fun!
