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.

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.

Pennsylvania Dairymen’s Association to roll out signature blue and white milkshakes at Penn State Home Football Games in September

State College, PA — The American Dairy Association North East (ADANE) and Pennsylvania Dairymen’s Association announced today they have entered into a sponsorship agreement for the first time with Penn State Football to promote their innovative partnership with Feeding Pennsylvania called Fill a Glass with Hope®, a charitable campaign that raises funds so that Feeding PA’s member food banks can purchase milk directly from their local dairies, at a reduced price, and distribute it to families facing hunger.

“One in five Pennsylvania children face hunger every day, which is enough to fill Beaver Stadium five times,” states Feeding Pennsylvaniaexecutive director Jane Clements-Smith. “This sponsorship is a great opportunity to introduce the Fill a Glass with Hope® program to tens of thousands of Penn State Football fans, and invite them to help our neighbors in need.”

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.
