“Keep Youthful – Drink Milk” was the original National Milk Month campaign, which kicked off in 1937. Entire communities across the country, both rural and urban, have embraced it and celebrated in various ways. Some Dairy Month activities include: dairy food demonstrations, parades with bands and floats, cow visits at zoos, cow milking contests, dairy farm tours, or free milk and ice cream cone offerings at local businesses. In more rural communities, you might see cattle shows and princess contests with coronation ceremonies. Visit a creamery, grocery store or local bank in one of these small towns, and you might see a dairy princess delivering smiles with local dairy samples.
