Dairy farmers. They are active members of their local community. They help support the economy and create an estimated 900,000 jobs in the United States alone! Most importantly, dairy farmers are dedicated to producing nutritious, tasty milk and dairy foods for all to enjoy. But beyond dairy farming, dairy farmers are like you and me. They are devoted to their family. They have pie-in-the-sky dreams. They pursue their goals and take up hobbies. And when life throws curveballs, they deal with them in stride.
Here are the ABCs of some of our nearly 9,000 dairy farm families we had the pleasure of featuring this year, in our “This American Dairy Farmer” video series.
