Dairymom's Thankful Thursday

It's always on honor to be invited to attend the proclamation of June
 as Arkansas Dairy Month by  Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson.
In today's tough economic climate for dairy farmers, Governor Hutchinson
 must have felt our need for encouragement when he spoke at this year's event.
"Dairy farmers are strong, they are survivors. I am proud to recognize
 their efforts during Arkansas Dairy Month."

Julie Griffin, our Arkansas Farm Bureau Dairy Ambassador,
will receive this year's proclamation in appreciation for her 
service promoting dairy in a variety of ways for the last two years.

Members of the newly established Arkansas Dairy Recruitment 
Task Force also joined us for the celebration of June Dairy Month.
 The task force is working to  assimilate information and resources that
 would be beneficial to existing Arkansas dairy farmers or farmers from
 other  states interested in relocating to Arkansas.

I'm thankful for the support of Governor Hutchinson, Arkansas Farm Bureau
 and the  Arkansas Department of Agriculture  in working to sustain 
and recruit dairy farms in our great state.
