From frosty ice cream to cool, creamy yogurt to an ice-cold glass of milk, dairy products help you beat the heat in the summertime, and we celebrate the hardworking farmers that produce them all month long in June.
Dairy is extremely versatile and can be found in dishes from breakfast to dessert. Some of our favorite recipes using dairy products include Blueberries and Cream Waffles, Kiwi, Strawberry and Blue Cheese Bruschetta, Honey-Bacon Goat Cheese Dip, Triple Mushroom and Leek Soup, Four-Cheese Shells and Greens Bake, Strawberry Cheesecake Milkshakes and No-Bake Key Lime Pie. You can find all of our recipes featuring dairy products here.
States with the highest milk production include California, Wisconsin, New York and Idaho, but almost all U.S. states produce dairy products. Dairy farmers are completely committed to animal care and embrace current technology to help keep production efficient.
