UDM Cla&Uiffds fray \ Your Kossuth County FARM BUREAU Presents the Story of June Dairy Month "JUNE DAIRY MONTH" — as il is now known throughout ihe land—had its start in 1937. when National Milk Week was held November 14-20 for the purpose of enlarging markets for milk and ice cream. It was the first organized attempt on the part of the great Dairy industry to create a wider market for its products. This first attempt, back in 1937, was so successful thai ihe industry decided it should be repeated, but it was felt that a longer period should be observed. In 1938, the Dairy industry's special promotional period was called National Milk Week, but it was moved up to the summertime to coincide with the season of highest milk' production.' being held in that year from June 10 to July 10. Again'the campaign was emintfhily successful. To streamline ihe Dairy industry's annual campaign, and to make it a little easier to manage, it was then changed to cover the entire month of June in '1939, and in that year the now. familiar title "JUNE DAIRY MONTH" was first presented. All types of producers in the industry— from the dairy farmer to the processor and retailer — joined to make' June Dairy Month a memorable annual event, and it has become more of an "institution" throughout the ntaion each year. "JUNE DAIRY MpNTH" has been held in June every year s-ncc, and it is being celebrated now from coast to coast, in honor, of the nation's dairymen .and the outstanding products they produce.
