Attend farm breakfasts to support dairy industry
MADISON - When 20,000 pounds of cheese and 13,000 gallons of milk have been ordered, it can only mean one thing - June Dairy Month is here and the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board (WMMB) is ready to celebrate.
WMMB is excited to see residents enjoying family-friendly activities while they visit local
dairy farms and learn about the industry.
"The Wisconsin dairy industry is an essential component of our great state," said Governor Walker. "Dairy farmers deserve to be recognized not only during June Dairy Month, but year-round, as their hard work and dedication produce world-class dairy products and a strong economy. Local farm breakfasts are outstanding events that provide fun for all ages, and we encourage Wisconsinites to get out this June and
show their support."
Finding a farm breakfast to attend is easy with the help of WMMB's recently redesigned Dairy Days of Summer website. The site offers an interactive, statewide farm breakfast map, as well as details about what attendees can expect when visiting a dairy farm.
"There is no better way to learn about the Wisconsin dairy industry than to actually visit a dairy farm," said Chad Vincent, CEO of WMMB. "Wisconsin dairy farm families host more than 72 farm breakfasts in honor of June Dairy Month, with numerous opportunities to see firsthand what happens on a farm, enjoy a homemade breakfast with Wisconsin dairy products, and of course meet the hardworking farm families of our great state."
For residents who cannot make it out to farm breakfasts this year, WMMB encourages supporting dairy farms by purchasing Wisconsin dairy products, donating Wisconsin dairy products to a local food bank or donating to The Great American Milk Drive.
