“We love honoring our state’s hard-working dairy farmers and all involved in creating our delicious dairy foods and milk enjoyed by families throughout the Commonwealth. Dairy Month is a great reminder of our nutrient-enriched dairy products, how our foods get from cow to cup and delivered to our homes and how to support our dairy industry and farmers. We enjoy informing and educating consumers about the wholesome, goodness of dairy along with the nutritional benefits derived from consuming three servings a day. We also have fun meeting our milkshake fans throughout the region. Remember every PA Dairymen’s milkshake helps support so many fabulous causes across the state,” says PA Dairymen’s Association Executive Director Dave Smith.

“We hope our commitment to spreading “milkshake smiles” highlights our commitment to community partnership—one that focuses on joy, positivity and giving back. Through our philanthropic initiatives, we are ensuring that we not only serve a high quality, delicious shake, but a shake that wins by supporting countless agricultural, educational, farming, community, youth programs and scholarships,” he added.

Follow PA Dairymen’s Association on social media all month for dairy industry highlights and a full schedule of events on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. Proceeds from milkshake sales help support the PA Dairymen’s charitable causes, scholarships and philanthropic work.
