National Dairy Month

Meet The People Leading Dairy

Celebrate Wisconsin Dairy Farmers

Welcome to National Dairy Month – a celebration of the farmers who help define our state and makes us who we are. Dairy farmers are hardworking and passionate about providing wholesome food for our communities. While we may not be physically gathering to celebrate at summertime events like breakfast-on-the-farm traditions, this page provides ways you and your family can participate wherever you are!

Meet the families behind Wisconsin dairy and learn about their dedication to their animals, environment and communities.
