Dairy producers often use state fairs to reach consumers and educate the public about how farmers take great care of their cows. Farmers work hard to provide quality food for consumers. They take pride in providing educational materials, dairy recipes and information to fairgoers. Stop by the state dairy association booth, display or visit the dairy barn at your state fair.
