HARRISBURG, Pa. — The Center for Dairy Excellence has partnered with the Pennsylvania Dairy Promotion Program and the Mid-Atlantic Dairy Association to release a new “Something to Treasure” poster that showcases the benefits that Pennsylvania dairy farm families bring to their local communities.
The 2-foot-by-3-foot poster complements the Center for Dairy Excellence’s “Something to Treasure” tri-fold brochure, released in 2010 to highlight the economic, environmental and sociological benefits a dairy farm brings to a community.
With photos of three Pennsylvania dairy farm families, the free poster is intended to educate nonfarm neighbors and community leaders about contributions of local dairy farms.
The poster features the “Your Milk Comes from a Good Place” logo to tie into the regional campaign introduced in 2011 by the Mid-Atlantic Dairy Association.
Copies of the full-color “Something to Treasure” tri-fold brochure are also available at no cost to farmers, agribusiness members, civic leaders and others who want to educate the general public about the dairy industry.
Since it was released in 2010, about 35,000 of the brochures have been provided to local farm families, dairy promotion groups and community advocates to demonstrate dairy’s value in their communities.
Both the poster and brochure could be used at farm tours, dairy princess promotions, community events or as part of scheduled presentations. They can also be made available at visitor centers and other community meeting places.
