June Dairy Month Spotlight
It's June Dairy Month and a lot of farmers are out in the community spreading the word about the goodness of dairy. We want to hear about how you're encouraging people to 'Get More With Milk.' Laurens dairy farmer Marilyn Easter has been busy this month. She kicked off June with a timely and informative interview about Dairy Month and the nutritional powerhouse of dairy on her local radio station, WLBG 860 AM. The interview ran several times in June and you can listen to it here.
Easter also attended a Summer Food Service Kickoff event at EdVenture Children's Museum in Columbia on June 10. Summer feeding programs provide another great source of nutrition for children, as meals include milk, cheese or yogurt. There was plenty of SUDIA promotional materials about dairy nutrition and recipes on hand for children, parents and teachers to take home with them.
