Digital Media Assets for National Dairy Month

Celebrate Wisconsin Dairy Farmers

National Dairy Month is a time-honored tradition that’s spanned nearly 90 years. This year, perhaps more than ever, it’s an opportunity to celebrate Wisconsin’s dairy farmers. Their tireless commitment to producing real, nutritious milk and other wholesome dairy products for their communities is stronger than ever.

Here, you’ll find everything you need to craft stories that honor the people who have dedicated their lives to making Wisconsin America’s Dairyland.
