Dairy Industry Partners Kick-off 2018 Fill a Glass with Hope® Program & Announce New Calving Corner Exhibit at PA Farm Show
HARRISBURG, Pa. – State dairy industry leaders from the Pennsylvania Dairymen’s Association, the Calving Corner, Feeding Pennsylvania, American Dairy Association North East, Center for Dairy Excellence, Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture and Pennsylvania Dairy Promotion Program kicked off the 2018 award-winning Fill a Glass with Hope® fresh milk distribution program today at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex and Expo Center. Two newborn calves named “Fill” and “Hope” then joined the partners as they cut a red ribbon signifying the opening of the Calving Corner, a dairy cow birthing center debuting at the 2018 Pennsylvania Farm Show.
The Calving Corner is back at Farm Show for year two! The Calving Corner is a live dairy cow birthing center that offers a unique opportunity to witness the miracle of life, see cows and newborns up close, and learn more about how Pennsylvania’s dairy farmers work hard every day to responsibly care for their animals and be conscientious stewards of the land and environment. We’re proud to help sponsor this important exhibit!

The annual Pennsylvania Farm Show is the largest indoor agricultural event held in the country, and with over half a million visitors, I can’t think of a better place for the dairy industry to interact with the public.
