Gov. Evers Celebrates National Dairy Month

MADISON — Gov. Tony Evers today celebrated June as National Dairy Month. Wisconsin has a long and proud tradition as “American’s Dairyland” and Gov. Evers celebrated the role that our dairy industry plays in Wisconsin’s collective heritage, culture, and identity through a video message available here.

Hey there, Wisconsin! Governor Evers here.

It’s National Dairy Month, and if there’s one thing we all know for sure, it’s that they don’t call Wisconsin “America’s Dairyland” for nothing.

As one of the nation’s top producers of dairy and supplier of more than a quarter of the country’s cheese, no one does dairy quite like us.

With more than 1.2 million dairy cows across our state and more than 95% of our dairy farms being family-owned, it’s impossible to go anywhere in Wisconsin and not be reminded how critically important the dairy industry is to our state.

So, whether it’s a cheese curd, custard, a glass of milk, or—my favorite—ice cream, this Dairy Month, join me in supporting Wisconsin’s dairy farmers and producers who work every day to make Wisconsin great.

Thank you!
