“Dairy Weekend” Kicks off to Close out June

American Dairy Association North East and Dairy Princesses Kick off “Dairy Weekend” at Stores Across Pennsylvania

HARRISBURG, Pa.Shoppers can meet dairy princess royalty and sample fresh, locally-produced milk this weekend as dairy princesses join farmers and industry leaders celebrating “Dairy Weekend” at retail outlets across the state. The events, taking place during June Dairy Month, are part of the new “Choose PA Dairy: Goodness That Matters” awareness campaign to encourage local milk consumption and highlight the nutritional and economic benefits of Pennsylvania’s nearly $15 billion dairy industry.

Dairy princesses and farmers across the state will be on hand at local grocery stores on “Dairy Weekend” to provide fresh, wholesome samples of Pennsylvania-produced milk that is sold in their stores. They’ll also share information on the positive economic impact of dairy farming on our local and state economies, as well as dairy farmers’ environmentally-friendly practices and philanthropy that benefits neighbors in need.
