The 2015 Breakfast on the Farm was held at the Lammers farm and Lammers stated that even though they are a small farm, the family received a lot of thank you notes from people who had visited the event.

Lammers said many visitors stated they were glad a smaller farm had been spotlighted and how the kids enjoyed the petting zoo, while the older visitors enjoyed the antique tractors.

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

Scholten said she instructs 4-year-old and 5-year-old kindergarten students using informative, colored programs.

“I enjoy what I am doing,” Scholten said.

Kammann noted that she was able to reach about 3,000 students, visiting mainly with older students

She also announced that Addie, the mechanical cow, has now reached the age of 10 and that Allen Nohl continues to transport Addie from place to place and keeps her in good “milking” order.

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

The Dairy Promotion Association presented two scholarship awards.

One went to Stephanie Thiel, who will attend UW-Fond du Lac to study food science.

The other scholarship went to UW-River Falls student Erica Helmer, who 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 providing the food for the Breakfast on the Farm.

Updated literature was handed out showing that Sheboygan County agriculture proves jobs for 8,662 people and brings in $3.1 billion in economic activity.

Agriculture contributes to $739 million to the county’s total income and it 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.
