America’s dairy farmers need our full support

June is Dairy Month, so it is time to thank the dairy farmers in our area. Dairy farmers supply us with milk, cheese, yogurt, ice cream, butter and a rich variety of ingredients for our health. Not only do they provide us with delicious and nutritious treats, but dairy farmers in Minnesota have an annual output value of $4.6 billion, and create nearly 40,000 jobs in the state of Minnesota. There are 101 cows on the average dairy farm and dairy is 24 percent of the state’s total livestock receipts.
