Governor Proclaims June Dairy Month in Washington State

The Dairy Farmers of Washington (DFW) are busy wrapping up the most important month of the year-- June Dairy Month and Governor Jay Inslee wants to be sure dairy is being celebrated throughout the state.  

According to a proclamation signed by Governor Inslee, “dairy is essential for some of the most delicious food combinations imaginable including cereal and milk, mac and cheese, hot fudge and ice cream, and cheeseburgers.”

Join Me in the Celebration of Dairy

June is National Dairy month. For a cow-obsessed country girl like me, that represents a perfect 30 days of everything dairy. Certainly my kind of month!

Dairy Month began 80 years ago as National Milk Month and is still going strong today. It is a time to celebrate all things dairy from the farmers, to the new innovative technologies on farms to the delicious dairy products.

4-H: Memories that Last a Lifetime

My 4-H career began as a cow-obsessed 8 year old when I joined Hoofs n’ Paws 4-H club. I showed a little Jersey heifer my first year from a local dairy. I was ecstatic.

A spring dairy show in May was the very first time I was in the show ring. I don’t remember how I placed but I do remember my excitement was at an all-time high – I couldn’t focus at all so I tried to soak it all in the best I could.

I’m Grateful for My Farm Life

Take a moment to think where your food comes from – the very root of where it began!

In a generation focused on the fast-paced hustle and bustle that our culture seems to thrive on, many of us forget where the food on the very plate in front of us comes from.

In honor of National Agriculture Day I would like to take a moment to thank something we all get the privilege to be a part of – farming.

You might be thinking, “Well, I live in an apartment building in the middle of a city… I’m not a part of agriculture!”
