Gov. Brown Proclaims June as 'Real California Milk Month'
USAgNet - 06/11/2018

In celebration of June Dairy Month and the contribution of the state's 1,300 dairy farm families to the communities and economy of California, Governor Edmund Brown has proclaimed June as "Real California Milk Month."

The governor says the regional distinction is in addition to the annual National Dairy Month celebration that recognizes all dairy products and the farmers who produce the milk that helps feed the nation and, increasingly, the world.

In the proclamation, Governor Brown states, "The landscape, economy, health, and nutrition of California would not be the same without our dairy farms. I urge all Californians to take time to appreciate the privilege of living in one of the world's great dairy-producing regions, and to support our industry by buying milk and other dairy products from our Golden State."

California produces more fluid milk, butter, ice cream, nonfat dry milk and whey protein concentrate than any other state, and is the second-largest producer of cheese behind Wisconsin.
