Dairy promotion folks welcome you

PHILADELPHIA, Pa. -- The Mid-Atlantic Dairy Association and the Pennsylvania Dairy Promotion Program invite dairy farmers to visit their booth at Ag Progress Days, Aug.13-15, to learn more about how dairy checkoff is working to increase demand for and sales of milk and dairy products.

The dairy promotion booth, located in Dairy Tent 1 at Ag Progress Days in Rock Springs, will highlight checkoff-related school programs and the “Your Milk Comes from a Good Place,” consumer education campaign. Dairy farmers are reminded to bring their postcard to the booth to redeem it for a “Your Milk Comes from a Good Place” ice cream spade.

All dairy farmers attending Ag Progress Days on Thursday, Aug. 15, are invited to attend the Pennsylvania Dairy Promotion Program annual information meeting and luncheon for an update on how dairy checkoff-led school marketing programs are building life-long dairy consumers in schools throughout the Mid-Atlantic region.

The meeting and luncheon will begin at noon in the Special Events Building. The luncheon will feature a variety of Domino’s® pizzas to highlight the dairy checkoff partnership with the quick-serve pizza chain.
