June Dairy Month

Celebrating Where Good Comes From

This June Dairy Month, Midwest Dairy invites you to join us in celebrating dairy’s goodness. Not only do dairy foods taste good, but they are good for our health and our budgets. Dollar for dollar, no other food offers as much nutrition as milk.

At the heart of dairy’s goodness are Midwest dairy farmers, who work hard every day to ensure nutritious milk is available to families. Recently, they partnered with Feeding America and the nation’s milk processors to launch the Great American Milk Drive. This program will help put milk on the tables of families who need it the most. Visit milklife.com/give to learn how you can donate.

It’s also a great time to highlight dairy’s nutritional and economic value, as well as get to know some of the 9,000 Midwest Dairy farm families. Be sure to check out our June Dairy Month calendar to take advantage of visiting a dairy open house, breakfast on the farm or a dairy event in your state. And June Dairy Month wouldn’t be complete without trying some dairy fresh recipes. So let’s raise our glass of milk and toast to dairy’s goodness!

Raise a Glass of Milk to Toast Dairy’s Goodness

More than 75 years since the annual celebration began, June Dairy Month continues to recognize dairy foods and the people who make them possible to enjoy. Today, dairy’s goodness comes from more than 9,000 dairy farm families from throughout the Midwest. Beginning in 1937, the observance was created as a way to help distribute extra milk when cows started on pasture in the summer months.
