"This Milk is for you!"
In March of 2020, our world was turned "upside down". A microscopic virus spread around the Earth, making people very sick, and unfortunately, too many of our friends and family were lost. Our economies, schools, recreational past times, and lives were shut down to minimize the spread of the virus. Even today, we still see areas shut down, or restricted activities, to minimize the COVID - 19 Virus spread.
There were some who had to stay "open" despite the unknown dangers. Our dairy and other farms never closed their doors. They had to provide the food people needed. Our dairy and food processing companies stayed open. We saw entire factories impacted by the spread of the virus. They'd close down and then as soon as possible, re-open to keep our food system operating. It was phenomenal to see the dedication and perseverance of all these incredible people.
But as much as our agricultural industry remained open, we recognize there were others who stared into the eyes of the unknown, an unseen danger, and faced the possibility of something they could not see invading their bodies and potentially losing their own life, to take care of others.
These bravest women and men are our emergency first responders and front line health care workers.
They responded to the danger, and took care of our communities.
It is to each of them, every single person, that our dairy farms and entire dairy industry dedicate our month of June, Dairy Month, to say THANK YOU for everything they did to take care of community.
