It is time for the kids to participate in the 2014 National Holstein Convention in Dubuque, Iowa.  Kids from all over the United States have spent months preparing for the “Junior” activities at the convention.  These activities include Dairy Jeopardy, Dairy Quiz Bowl, Educational Displays, Speech, and State Banner.  There are also fun activities – dance, hoedown, water park, and tours of local dairies and other destinations.  We are excited for our 2nd opportunity to participate in this amazing program for kids in the dairy industry.

See you in Dubuque for Moovin’ on the River!!

Celebrate “June Dairy Month”

Leave a comment

Every June, dairy farmers celebrate with the rest of the country “June Dairy Month”. This is a great opportunity to showcase the nation’s dairy producers and processors and the tireless work to produce quality dairy products like milk, cheese, ice cream, and yogurt. June is a great opportunity to get your fill of your favorite dairy products. As school ends and the weather gets warmer, what a great chance to enjoy an ice cream cone or milkshake featuring your favorite flavor. My favorite is a Chocolate Peanut Butter milkshake. String cheese is my choice as I head out to the barn to do feed calves. There are so many opportunities to add dairy to your day!! So take a moment to help dairy farmer’s celebrate “June Dairy Month”!!
