The County Fair is the Place to Be!

Guest blogger, Christa Ealy, is the 2018-2019 Mercer County Dairy Princess

This summer, the county fair is the place to be! There are many activities, games, food and fun. Don’t forget to visit all the animals, especially the dairy cows and calves. As you walk through the barns, you’ll have many opportunities to learn about dairy cows and where your milk and other dairy foods come from.

How Dairy Cows Can Help Reduce Food Waste

Guest blogger, Amanda Rees is the 2018-2019 Montgomery County Dairy Princess

Did you know that Pennsylvania is fifth in the nation for population size? And with a large population comes food waste.

As a senior studying Animal science and Dairy Science at Delaware Valley University, I am currently assisting in a research project on dairy cows fed a ration (diet) of expired fruit, vegetables and bakery products.

Summer Days at the County Fair

Summer in Pennsylvania means hot days, green, growing corn, and for ag kids, county fair! A week out of the summer that my family and I look forward to every year. A whole week spent at the local fair, seeing friends, exhibiting the projects that we worked so hard on and even enjoying some tasty fair food!
