American Dairy Association North East continually works to place positive stories in the news media to help consumers better understand modern dairy farming. This week, dairy farmer Alicia Lamb of Oakfield Corners Dairy, Oakfield, N.Y., submitted a letter to the editor to the Batavia Daily News, as part of ADA North East’s consumer media outreach efforts.
Her letter reminded consumers that, “during the pandemic, dairy farmers continue to care for our cattle and produce nutrient-rich cow’s milk and milk products to feed our communities.” Letters to the editor are just one way ADA North East engages consumers to put a face on dairy farming.
