Guest Blog: The Life Lessons Learned on a Dairy Farm

This month, we welcome Halee Wasson, the 2016-2017 Pennsylvania Dairy Princess as a guest contributor.

Where I grew up is unlike many. I grew up hearing, seeing and smelling rural Pennsylvania. Every day, I can hear the cows mooing in the barnyard, see acres of corn growing over the never-ending hills and smell that pungent scent of manure for miles.

Happy Valley Gets Milkshake Smiles

Penn State Football fans, September home games just got a little sweeter! We’ll be serving our famous Dairymen’s milkshakes in Happy Valley before the games on September 2, 9, 16 and 30. Stop by Curtin Road Fan Fest by the Bryce Jordan Center to get an exclusive blue & white milkshake.

Each shake sold will donate $1 to the Fill a Glass with Hope campaign which provides fresh milk to local families in need. September is Hunger Action Month and you can help provide 8 servings of fresh milk with every shake you purchase! 

We’ll see you there. #WeAre going to tackle hunger together!

Guest Blog: Chocolate Milk and a Princess Crown

This month, we welcome Brittany Haag, the 2016-2017 Pennsylvania Alternate Dairy Princess as a guest contributor.

Most people involved in the dairy industry love anything and everything about cows. Though cows are one of my favorite animals, you are more likely to find this princess at the dance studio. I am Brittany Haag, the Pennsylvania Alternate Dairy Princess, and the daughter and sister of generational dairy farmers in Mohrsville, Pa. Growing up, I showed cows, fed calves and cleaned out stalls just like every other farm kid. However, I found my passion to be on the dance floor.
