farm-familyMADISON — Gov. Tony Evers today delivered the Democratic Radio Address as he kicks off June as Dairy Month in America’s Dairyland. Throughout the month of June, the governor will be visiting with dairy farmers, processors, and producers, as well as local community and agricultural industry leaders across the state, to celebrate the strength of Wisconsin’s dairy industry and to highlight the state’s investments in the dairy and agricultural industries, including the governor’s proposed 2023-25 biennial budget initiatives.

Hey there, folks. Governor Tony Evers here.

tony-eversIt’s National Dairy Month! If there’s one thing we all know for sure, it’s that they don’t call Wisconsin America’s Dairyland for nothing.

As a kid from Plymouth—which is the Cheese Capitol of the World, by the way!—who spent time in one of my first jobs scraping mold off of cheese, it’s safe to say that I’ve been a big fan of Wisconsin cheese and our dairy industry all my life.

As one of the nation’s top producers of dairy and supplier of over a quarter of the country’s cheese, no one does dairy quite like us.

That’s why I’ve been proud to support our dairy industry over the past four years with increased investments in our Dairy Processor Grant Program, support for farmers during tough times through our Wisconsin Farm Support Program, and our work to increase the value of Wisconsin dairy exports by 2026.

Wisconsin’s dairy industry is our past and our present, and it will be a key part of our future.

So, whether it’s a fried or fresh cheese curd, custard or ice cream, chocolate milk or regular milk, this Dairy Month, join me in supporting Wisconsin’s dairy farmers and producers and all that makes Wisconsin, Wisconsin.

Happy Dairy Month!
