Dairy farmers attending the 2010 Pennsylvania Dairy Summit in Lancaster earlier this month shared why they are proud to dairy in Pennsylvania. The Center for Dairy Excellence compiled a slideshow featuring comments from producer leaders involved in the summit, while participants were invited to share their comments on a white board. Some of the comments they shared are listed below.
¨ We feed the world with God’s most perfect food!
¨ I am proud to produce a healthful product.
