National Ag Day is March 21, 2017. This day recognizes and celebrates the abundance provided by American agriculture. Dairy farmers play an important role in your everyday life, providing you and your family with wholesome and nutritious milk, cheese and yogurt.
Ho, ho, ho! Santa is getting ready to visit Pennsylvania. Letters began pouring in at the North Pole months ago from kids asking for Hatchimals, Hot Wheels and Barbie dream houses. While dairy farmers enjoy gifts, there are more practical wishes on their lists! Here are a few things a dairy farmer would enjoy this year.
Did you know that fresh milk is one of the most request items at food banks but that access to it is limited? When Pennsylvania dairy farmers learned this, they immediately set to work, forming partnerships that would put milk into food banks and ensure that their neighbors in need were able to receive nutritious fresh milk. The Fill a Glass with Hope® program was born.
Giant feasts and decadent desserts, family and friends, full bellies and messy kitchens – ah, the holiday season is here! For most, this time of year is a time to celebrate and have fun. Does it get any better than that?
For dairy farmers, the holidays are a little bit different. Dairy farmers make sure their cows are comfortable year-round, and the holidays are no exception. While dairy farmers make time to eat turkey, drink eggnog and be merry with their loved ones, their cows still require daily care – even on Thanksgiving and Christmas.
February: a month dedicated to love, lovers and all things red and heart-shaped. As Americans, we’ve taken the call to express our love in February to heart and show our love to our partners, our children – even our pets! But, what do you do if you have a few hundred dairy cows? As we close out the month, it’s a good time to recognize how dairy farmers love their animals all year long. Taking care of these bovine beauties is a love story worth telling.
