t- Aljjona (la.) Upper Des Maine* Thursday, June 8, 1967 Dairy Farmer Is a Modern Business Man Today's dairy farmer does much more than just milk his cows. He is u businessman with a large capital investment — usually around $100,000 —an active participant in cooperative ventures related to his own promotional organization. Many years ago. the dairyman realized that his responsibility for his milk didn't end at the creamery. He knew he must have a product that could compete in the supermarkets and a profitable market for his products. To accomplish this task, dairymen formed the American Dairy Association in 1940. The purpose of the organization was, and is, to act as the voice of the dairy farmer in the marketplaces of America. The association is farmer- financed, and farmer controlled. It exists solely for the purpose of expanding the sales of all dairy foods through a promotional program of non- brand advertising, trade publicity, merchandising, public relations and research. The rapid growth of the American Dairy Association is the best testimonial to the success of the idea. Begun in 1940 with six member states, membership now totals more than 200,000 in all 50 states. The promotional program is financed entirely by the nation's dairy farmers who voluntarily invest two cents per 100 pounds of milk sold. The 1967 national budget for advertising and promotion is about S8 million. In addition, each state unit finances and conducts local campaigns to supplement the national program. The goal of the association is to improve dairy foods sales by constantly reminding consumers of their nutritive val- . ues. Warning: Don't Fire BB, Pellet Guns In City! Youngsters firing away with BB and pellet guns and slingshots inside the city limits of Algona were warned they will be charged with a. violation of an ordinance if • apprehended by city police. • Not only that, according to Police Chief Al Boekelman, they will have their weapons impounded and are bound to have a great deal of trouble getting them back from officials at all. According to Boekelman, parents should make it clear to " their children it is against the law to shoot any of these weapons inside the city limits, in fact they should not fire them unless well away from personal property of others. A recent incident here resulted in a picture window beir^ shot out on East Linden street and ifs apparent the police viH not stand for such activities. The consequences la court here could be quite costly. Small Algona Girl Hurt In Power Mower A 2 1/2 year old Aigona girl, Janet Rich, daughter o!

DAIRY FOODS MAKE MEALS A CIUCUS ALL SUMMER LONE June is the month that turns spring into summer, an ideal time to make meals a three-ring circus of Facility, Uplift and Nourishment. That spells fun! Ring one starts the day off right with cereal and milk for breakfast. Peak performance continues in ring two after a milk and sandwich lunch. Big top off each day with a three-ring dinner that may consist of a sour cream casserole, Blue cheese salad, and a continental dessert of apple wedges and Cheddar cheese. June, like the moon, has a ring around it to remind homemakers to use versatile dairy products during warm weather months ahead. June is a month-long nationwide parade of praise of the Dairy Industry for its invaluable contributions to the health and economy of our nation. Dairy Foods are fresh when you use them, fast to fix, and fun to eat. Get on the Dairy Food bandwagon during June and stay on it all year long!
