CDPG Connection - May 2019
Hi! I am Beth Schaefer and I am excited to begin working with all of the County Dairy Promotion Groups. I have been with DFW since 2011 and have worked with school programs, local TV and radio and CDPGs in North Central Wisconsin. Prior to joining DFW, I taught high school agriculture and biology.

I have helped plan and execute dairy promotions since my 4-H and FFA days and in the past have served as a Breakfast on the Farm/June Dairy Breakfast planning committee member in three different counties. 

I know the joys and frustrations that can come with planning and executing events, recruiting and working with volunteers and finding just the right resources to educate children to adults about our state’s incredible dairy heritage and dairy economic impact.  These experiences have helped me gain a GREAT appreciation for the many, many volunteers who choose to share their time, talent and often their treasure with County Dairy Promotion Groups.
Tin a Peterson, Brenda Murphy, Angie Edge, Jane Losee, Karen Doster, and Vicki Janisch all continue to work at DFW in different capacities. Renee Grunewald will continue to provide support and materials for CDPGs.

I am looking forward to meeting and working with you and your committees to continue to grow our efforts of educating consumers, building trust in our Wisconsin Dairy farmers and promoting our award-winning Wisconsin dairy products. 

June Dairy Month - Is Live!

If your county has not entered your event information into the promotional website,  please do so as soon as possible. You will need to register to enter and/or edit your event so please follow the instructions for the registration process.

Check out the promotional catalog as well as the audio PSA's we have for June Dairy Month. The online catalog has you covered for your dairy promotions from coloring/activity sheets, to cheese signs, posters and flyers. If you need support with any of these materials please reach out.
We also had an opportunity to share promotion ideas and June Dairy Month initiatives with the  La Crosse County Dairy Promotion Group  during the  Wisconsin Farm Bureau Federation  monthly webinar. Hope you enjoy the recording!
Update your Signage
Do you have materials with the old Wisconsin Cheese, Wisconsin Dairy or the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board logo? Let's work together and update your materials to best reflect what consumers are seeing both in retail and restaurants across Wisconsin.
