June is National Dairy Month, a moment in time each year where we pause to celebrate America’s hardworking dairy farmers and the dairy foods that nourish people, strengthen communities and foster a sustainable future.
Today and every day, dairy farmers are committed to producing the delicious and nutritious dairy foods we all know and enjoy. They work around-the-clock to care for their animals and protect their environment because it’s what they love to do!
Why National Dairy Month?
June Dairy Month has been a tradition in the U.S. since 1937. It was established by grocers organizations as a way to distribute extra milk during the warm months of summer. By 1939, June became the official “Dairy Month” and has since transitioned to a sales promotion program for milk and dairy foods.
West Virginia and Ohio dairy farmers do more than just produce milk and nutritious dairy foods; they create jobs, contribute to their local communities and drive the economy.
