June is Pennsylvania Dairy Month
The month of June is Pennsylvania Dairy Month. The PA commonwealth wants to recognize the contributions of dairy farmers. According to the Pennsylvania Farm Bureau, dairy farmers play a major role in Pennsylvania agriculture and the state’s economy, generating more than $1.9 billion dollars in revenue per year. Pennsylvania’s dairy farmers rank fifth nationally in the production of milk. Farmers have seen the price they received for the milk they produce drop in 2012 compared to 2011.
