MEMORANDUM

Posted: March 26, 2024 09:49 AM
From: Senator Elder A. Vogel, Jr.
To: All Senate members
Subject: Designating June 2024 as “Dairy Month” in Pennsylvania
 
In honor of our hardworking dairy farmers who work tirelessly to provide fresh dairy products to our families, I will be introducing a resolution designating the month of June 2024 as “Dairy Month” in Pennsylvania.
 
Our dairy industry is a staple here in the Commonwealth and remains an integral part of our community and economy.
 
Currently, we have nearly 5,000 dairy farms (99% of them being family owned), and an industry, as a whole, that supports 47,000 jobs and contributes $11.8 billion to our state’s economy.
 
Pennsylvania’s dairy industry continues to be a strong national competitor as it ranks 6th in total number of milk cows (470,000 total cows) and 8th in total state milk production (producing nearly 10 billion pounds annually).
 
Please join me in recognizing the impact of the dairy industry on our Commonwealth and celebrating our dairy farmers by cosponsoring this resolution.
 



Introduced as SR303
