There Are Still A Lot Of People Involved In Dairy Farming
State recognizes dairy farmers
Throughout the month of June, New York State Agriculture Commissioner Patrick Hooker will be honoring dairy farmers as June is Dairy Month in New York State. With 5,400 dairy farms producing over 12 billion pounds of milk annually, New York is the nation's third largest dairy state.
"June Dairy Month was originally celebrated to help stabilize the demand for milk and dairy products during the spring months of peak milk production," the Commissioner said. "Today, we simply honor our dairy farmers and the dairy processors for the safe, wholesome products they produce."
