Interested in sharing the dairy story with consumers? It’s not too late to sign up to volunteer for the Calving Corner or the milking parlor demos at the 2020 Pennsylvania Farm Show, Jan. 4-11, in Harrisburg. 

The Calving Corner is now part of the new “Destination Dairy” exhibit hall which will also include interactive, family-friendly learning stations related to dairy, and presentations by Pennsylvania dairy princesses. 

The events are opportunities to build and foster relationships between those involved in production agriculture and our consumers. To register as a volunteer, visit the 2020 Calving Corner Volunteers Signup and select the preferred time and volunteer opportunity.
