A new educational brochure available from the Pennsylvania Center for Dairy Excellence showcases the many contributions dairy farm families make to their local communities and economy.
"We are excited to offer this new brochure to help educate our non-farm neighbors about the treasures they have in Pennsylvania’s dairy farm families," said John Frey, executive director of the Center for Dairy Excellence. "The piece demonstrates the vital role dairies play in Pennsylvania’s rural communities through economic revenue, environmental stewardship and as a local food source – points that are important to the public."
The full-color "Pennsylvania’s Dairy Farmers: Something to Treasure in Your Community," funded through a grant from the Pennsylvania Dairyman’s Association, is available at no cost to Pennsylvania farmers, agribusiness members, civic leaders and others who want to educate the general public about the dairy industry.
Ideal for distributing to community leaders, economic planners and general consumers, the brochure could be used at farm tours, dairy princess promotions, community events or as part of scheduled presentations. It could also be made available at visitor centers and other community meeting places.
