This month, we welcome Katie Anderson, the 2016-2017 Pennsylvania Alternate Dairy Princess. She gives us a glimpse into the daily life of a Pa. dairy promoter.
Guest blogger, Jessica Peters, is a 5th generation dairy farmer in northwest Pennsylvania.
It’s no secret that dairy farming has recently gotten a bad rap, and it’s our own fault. It’s so easy for dairy farmers to get caught up in our day-to-day lives that we’ve completely neglected, well…. you, our customers!
Dairy farmers understand that some of what we do looks and sounds scary even though it is safe and has a positive end goal. The problem is that farmers rarely take the time to explain those scary things to you, our customers.
Thank goodness for social media. Through Facebook, blogs, Instagram and even Snapchat, dairy farmers have taken to the internet to share their story and to explain the why of what we do. And, oh boy, is there is a lot to share (and I’m not just talking about the adorable cow photos).
June is Dairy Month, and we’re celebrating 30 days of dairy with some great recipes and interviews with our friends at Good Day PA.
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.
Being a cow on a dairy farm has its perks – never having to clean my room or worry about dinner are a couple. But, just what do we do all day? Here’s an entry from my diary of a recent day to give you an inside peek.
