Dairy MAX Celebrates National Dairy Month
For some, June is the beginning of summer when kids are out of school and families are planning a vacation, but for dairy farmers it is the start of National Dairy Month. This month-long celebration recognizes the commitment dairy farmers have to their animals, their land and their communities. Dairy MAX, a non-profit dairy council representing more than 900 dairy farm families across eight states, will commemorate the annual month-long event by sharing the great news of dairy –a delicious and nutritious, cost-efficient food produced by the original environmental stewards, farmers.

"From improved farming practices and the commitment to providing safe and nutritious dairy to our communities, Oklahoma dairy farmers know how important it is to feed our fellow Oklahomans,” said Angie Meyer, Oklahoma dairy farmer. “We hope you can join us in celebration of National Dairy Month.”

Dairy farmers are just as committed to giving back through their work as they are to giving back to the communities they call home. Dairy MAX will partner with regional blood centers for the tenth annual Passion for PintsBlood Drive to celebrate National Dairy Month. Local dairy farmers will be present at select drives to visit with community members about dairy foods and how milk is sustainably produced on the farm. As a bonus, blood donors will receive giveaway items, including a commemorative t-shirt, stress-relief cow squeeze toy, recipe book featuring dairy foods, and dairy products for post-blood donation recovery at select locations.

Not every month is dairy month, but let’s celebrate every day like it is. Join dairy farmers in celebrating National Dairy Month and visit DairyDiscoveryZone.com to learn more or for additional resources.

Our Latest RRP takes us to Altus, Oklahoma. Farm Director, KC Sheperd, talks with Carl Josefy, the Jackson County, Oklahoma FSA Executive Director about all things FSA-related. Josefy explains various FSA programs available to producers and contradicts the misconception that these programs are only available to a small number of operations.

“It is always a pleasure to be able to get in front of producers to let them know what is occurring with the Farm Service Agency,” Josefy said. “We have a lot of programs going on, and it does overlap.”

The newly announced Emergency Relief Program, Josefy said, is aimed at aiding commodity and special crop producers. This program, he added, includes 10 billion dollars in assistance to agricultural producers that were impacted by wildfire, drought, hurricane, winter storms, and other eligible disasters that occurred across the country during the calendar year of 2021.
