Promoting Michigan's Dairy Industry, One Story at a Time
How have we skipped ahead to June already? As a whirlwind has past through spring, I’m happy to catch up for any of those who have thought the MI Dairy Ambassadors have fallen off the wagon. Now that February has come and gone, I have relinquished my duties as the senior dairy ambassador and handed over the torch to one Melissa Erdmen of Mindin City. Melissa hopes to work with nursing homes and other baby boomers to encourage milk consumption and renew a spirit of farm life they may once have known. Working with Melissa this year is Sarah Michalek, of Decherville as the junior ambassador. Congratulations to you both! http://holsteinworld.com/story.php?id=1194
What happened to this senior ambassador? While I love nothing more than promoting Michigan’s agricultural industry, I have landed a spot with Michigan Farm Radio Network working as the Agri-News Reporter! How perfect can this be that I speak to farmers every day, bringing them market updates and ag news? I am very happy in my new position and plan to stay active informing and promoting Michigan farmers across the state.
