Guest blogger, Yvonne Longenecker, is the 2017-2018 Pennsylvania State Dairy Princess
Christmas is just around the corner. It’s a time for family, friends and celebrating the holiday season. For most, it is a day off to relax and enjoy the holiday. But, dairy farmers cannot take a day off. Their farms operate 365 days a year so you can have food on your table three times a day, even Christmas day. Taking that into consideration, it is interesting to what has changed in Christmas past to today for dairy farmers.
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.
