National Dairy Month is celebrated every year during the month of June throughout the United States. It is a month-long celebration of the contributions the dairy industry has made for more than 85 years.
Many organizations use National Dairy Month as a platform to introduce the hard working dairy farmers and families that are behind milk and dairy products making it to your grocery store shelves every day. It is also a great time of year to help educate consumers about the numerous nutritional benefits associated with consuming dairy products including diabetes prevention, heart health, bone health, sports recovery, weight management, and more!
Whether you celebrate by brushing up on some dairy history, making your new favorite dairy-based recipe, or researching about the nutritional benefits of the 13 essential nutrients in milk, find your own way to celebrate this June!
