Visit the National Dairy Shrine Museum

March 28, 2013 | 0 comments

Dear Editor:

I read with great interest the article "The glory days of Pabst Farm Holsteins" in the Jan. 31, 2013 edition. The well-written story by John Oncken is definitely a tribute to the illustrious Pabst Farms.

Towards the end of the article, the author laments that Wisconsin needs a true dairy museum - "a place to hold the memories of hand milking and one-legged milk stools, state-of-the-art milking machines of 50 years ago, photos of famed dairy farms and cheese factories, long-necked test bottles and maybe even a Lely I robot milker."

Outside of the robotic milker, all of these things can be found at the National Dairy Shrine Museum in Fort Atkinson. In it you will find the most extensive dairy collection of memorabilia in North America along with countless mementos from Wisconsin's rich dairy history.

Originally founded in Waterloo, IA, Fort Atkinson was selected as a permanent home in October 1973. Many sites were considered including locations in Ohio, Kentucky and Tennessee.

Like most museum efforts, National Dairy Shrine relies on volunteers and donations from Interested parties.

If you would like to visit the National Dairy Shrine Museum, I would encourage you to travel to Fort Atkinson, and visit the museum which is open Tuesday-Saturday from 9:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.

National Dairy Shrine is truly a great asset to Wisconsin. Stop by and pay a visit (See related article on A9).

With best wishes,

Corey A. Geiger

Past President
