Show Your Support and Appreciation for the Dairy Industry: Here’s How

As the 84th National Dairy Month gets underway this month, AEM is proud to celebrate an industry that has overcome so much for so long and continually found a way to adapt throughout every step of its time-honored history.

The dairy industry of today tells a story of technological innovation and environmental stewardship. It's an industry that's decreased its environmental footprint and increased its productivity, all while creating a better environment for farmers and animals alike.

Dairy products play a vial role in the diets of the vast majority of people around the globe. And, as an excellent source of 12 essential nutrients, dairy products are among the most healthy and nutritious food options available today.

So, as AEM recognizes an industry that feeds the world, embraces technological innovation and advancement, as well as plays a vital role in our U.S. economy by accounting for over 3 million domestic jobs, the association asks its members to show do their part and show their support during National Dairy Month.
