Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback joined Midwest Dairy Council in recognizing Kansas dairy farmers and celebrating National Dairy Council’s 100th anniversary, May 22, at the Kansas State Capitol.
The Governor recognized the commitment of Kansas’ dairy farmers to the health and wellness of all Americans and issued a proclamation recognizing June 2015 as a time to celebrate the centennial anniversary of National Dairy Council.
“Today, we celebrate with Kansas dairy farmers their commitment to the health and well-being of all Americans,” said Governor Brownback as part of the proclamation. “I urge all citizens to thank Kansas dairy farmers for all of their hard work, dairy research and education and congratulate them on a job well done.”
Since its founding in 1915, National Dairy Council has helped people live healthier lives by communicating the nutrient-rich value of dairy foods like milk, cheese and yogurt in an overall balanced diet. Guided by science, National Dairy Council brings to life a shared vision for a healthy, joyful and sustainable world and a dedication to healthy products, healthy people, healthy communities and a healthier planet – now and for future generations.
Representatives from the Kansas Department of Agriculture, Kansas Dairy Association, and Dairy Farmers of America also attended the ceremony.
