Meet Dairy Farmers
The Midwest is home to more than 9,500 dairy farm families – the people behind the product. We invite you to get to know these families with Karen Bohnert, an Illinois dairy farm mom, as your guide. Through these stories you’ll learn about dairy farmers and their efforts to bring you fresh, great tasting, wholesome milk and dairy foods. As you travel with Karen, you’ll hear about ways farmers are preserving the land where they live and work, how they protect the air and water they share with neighbors, and provide the best care for their cows – the lifeblood of their business.
The dairy industry is a vital part of our nation’s food system. Dairy is essential to the health of communities across the country because it contributes jobs, income and economic vitality.
