The group sampled new cheese flavors before the meeting and discussed upcoming and past events.

The 2016 Breakfast on the Farm was announced by outgoing President Wendy Lammers. She was proud to announce that the breakfast would be sponsored by the cooperative entities of Majestic Crossing Dairy and the event would be held at the Meadows Facility located at N5854 Meadowlark Road, Sheboygan Falls. The parties involved are: Dean and Kris Strauss, Ed and Sandy Strauss, Roy and Chris Herzog, Wayne and Carol Wedepohl, Darin and Tanya Strauss, Ryan and Kathy Herzog and Robert and Linda Radloff.

The 2015 Breakfast on the Farm was held at the Lammers farm and she stated that even though they were a small farm they received lots of thank you notes from people who had visited the event. They told the Lammers they were glad a smaller farm had been spotlighted, how the kids had enjoyed the petting zoo, and the older visitors enjoyed the antique tractors

Dairy Ambassadors, Barb Scholten and Marlene Kammann both gave reports regarding their discussions with the elementary school students.

Scholten instructs 4K and 5K telling them where milk comes from. She uses many colored programs which are very informative and gives them a smaller version of the books, for them to take home. She also gives them a yogurt parfait and told the group, “I enjoy what I am doing”.

Kammann noted that she was able to reach about 3,000 students and visits with the older students. She also announced that Addie, the mechanical cow, has now reached the age of 10 and that Allen Nohl, Mechanical & Transportation Engineer continues to transport Addie from place to place and keeps her in good “milking” order.

She stated, “We are touching a lot of lives by visiting with the kids.”

The Dairy Promotion Association presented two scholarship awards. One went to Stephanie Thiel, who will attend the U.W. Fond du Lac for Food Science and the other to Erica Helmer, U.W. River Falls where she is studying Dairy Science.

The Friend of Association Award was awarded to Kevin Mey and Jim Weiser, former owners of the Plymouth Piggly Wiggly. These two friends of the association have retired, but they were instrumental in getting the food for the Breakfast on the Farm.

Updated literature was handed out and the new numbers prove to be very impressive for Sheboygan County Agriculture. Sheboygan County Agriculture provides jobs for 8,662 Agriculture contributes $739 million to the county’s total income and pays $42.7 million in taxes.

The Sheboygan County Dairy Promotion Association is an important part of Wisconsin’s dairy promotion efforts. The success of this Association depends on the support and involvement of local dairy families and Agri-Business people.
