Ice Cream for Breakfast in June
What’s wrong with ice cream for breakfast? NOTHING!
June is Dairy Month in Wisconsin and throughout our state, farms
and agricultural groups are hosting Dairy Breakfasts on local
farms. On most Saturdays and Sundays in June, you’ll find
dedicated volunteers cooking pancakes, scrambling eggs,
providing tours of farms and scooping ice cream…for breakfast!
As your State Senator, I plan to attend most of the breakfasts
in the 17th Senate District and will be volunteering at several
of them. There is nothing better than talking about agriculture
while enjoying breakfast on a farm! Please consider attending a
breakfast near you.

throughout the state, please visit the Wisconsin Milk Marketing
The dairy industry is one of the largest pieces of our economy
and a major employer. Wisconsin has more than 10,000 dairy
farms, 400 dairy plants, and more than one million dairy cows.
Dairy production is by far the largest agricultural sector in
the state and generates $43.4 billion annually for Wisconsin’s
Dairy Breakfasts and other events give local farmers and
agricultural organizations a chance to share experiences on the
farm and new, innovative technologies with citizens who may not
otherwise have an opportunity to visit a working farm. Many
attendees take away a deeper appreciation for the hard work and
effort required for farming, as well as a new impression of the
technology and expertise our local farmers employ to deliver the
best products to the market. The host farms and volunteers are
proud of their operations and the contributions they make to our
local and statewide economies.
As your State Senator, I am looking forward to visiting most of
the local breakfasts to enjoy the delicious meal, friendly
conversation and a tour of each farm I visit. I encourage you to
take the time to kick-off your summer with Dairy Days this year.

In the District
National EMS Week
Last week was National EMS (Emergency Medical Services) Week,
and I wanted to take a moment to send my sincere thanks to all
that are involved in the EMS programs throughout the district.
Thank you for all that you do to keep our families safe. My wife
was an EMT, so I know the extent of your commitment!
Dairy Days of Summer!
June is Dairy Month here in Wisconsin and you haven’t
experienced summer until you’ve had breakfast on the farm! It is
my goal to make it to all of the dairy breakfasts in the 17th
district, and I hope to see you there.
