Kentucky Commissioner of Agriculture Dr. Ryan Quarles, seated, holds up a proclamation with Kentucky Dairy Development Council Executive Director H.H. Barlow declaring June as Dairy Month in Kentucky. "June gives us the perfect opportunity to celebrate our dairy producers as we shine a light on them during Dairy Month and honor the service and the hard work of the Kentucky dairy farmer," Commissioner Quarles said.
Milk, the official beverage of Kentucky, ranks eighth as a Kentucky agriculture product with Kentucky dairy producers receiving nearly $174 million in cash receipts from sales of dairy products.
