Dairy Management Tip for the Month -June 2022

Let’s Celebrate National June Dairy Moo-nth

  •  National Dairy Month celebrations began in 1937 as a way to promote drinking milk and originally was called National Milk Month.
  • In 1939, the name was changed to National Dairy Month to promote all dairy products, not just milk.
  • In 2005, KY proclaimed milk as its official beverage.
  • In 20 states, milk is the official state beverage.  Besides KY, these states include AR, DE, LA, MD, MN, NE, NY, NC, ND, OK, OR, PA, RI, SC, SD, TN, VT, VA, and  WI.
  • In RI, coffee-flavored milk (my favorite) is the official beverage and is sold beside chocolate-flavored milk in grocery stores throughout eastern New England.
  • In MO, the official dessert is the ice cream cone.
  • Yogurt is the official state snack in NY.

  Hats off to all those involved in the Dairy Industry!!!!!
