Guest Blog: The Word Milk

Guest blogger, Jessica Peters, is a 5th generation dairy farmer in northwest Pennsylvania.

Dairy farmers are hard-working people who like straight-talk. Every day, they are putting in long-hours working on the farm to produce top-quality milk. So, when people call the milk’s nutrition or safety into question, it causes them concern. There’s so much more behind the word milk.

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.
