“Last year, I served as a dairy ambassador for Berks County. Some of my June Dairy Month highlights were sampling dairy products and interacting with consumers at a Giant Foods grocery store. I also love to make milkshakes during the month with fruits that are in season.”

“June, what a great month! I get to celebrate my birthday and my passion … dairy. I plan to spend the month educating consumers on the benefits of dairy products and the fervor of dairy farmers via our farm Facebook page, farm tours and word-of-mouth. I’m also going to eat lots of cheese and ice cream and drink lots of chocolate milk. And of course, spend ‘quality time’ with my girls … all 450 of them.”

“Our family likes to go to the local dairy breakfasts in Clark County. There is usually one every Sunday in June, so we go to eat pancakes and meet our neighbors.”

“During June Dairy Month, we thank our cows. We also like to celebrate with white milk, ice cream and my mom’s homemade chocolate chip cookies.”

“I really enjoy celebrating June Dairy Month by visiting a local creamery to eat an ice cream cone after finishing the evening milking.”

“June Dairy Month is a great excuse to eat more cheese and drink more milk. I enjoy these amazing products daily; however, in support of the Wisconsin dairy industry I shall eat and drink even more of these great products. As well, there is an opportunity to go and visit some great dairies across the state, which have graciously opened up their doors for us to come in and see what it is that makes Wisconsin ‘America’s Dairyland.’” PD
