June is here and it is time for National Dairy Month. Usually the Dane County Dairy Promotion Committee holds their Cows on the Concourse event at the beginning of the month to kick off the celebration. This year however, things will look different and you won’t see any cows on the capitol square. Sydney Endres, Public Relations Co-Chair for the committee shares that certain components of the event will be held with the Dane County Dairy Breakfast on the Farm in August, and the event is planning to return in full next June.
This year the Dane County Dairy Breakfast on the Farm will be held on August 21st at Hinchley’s Dairy Farm in Cambridge, Wisconsin. Given the uncertainty of county health restrictions, the group decided it was safest to hold the event in August rather than June. “It’s America’s Dairyland, we don’t need to limit ourselves to June to celebrate dairy,” says Endres. Components of Cows on the Concourse such as the Activity Fitness Zone, a scavenger hunt and different hands on activities will then be incorporated into the Breakfast on the Farm this year in addition to the normal farm tours and educational booths at the event.
Mark your calendars for the Dane County Dairy Breakfast on the Farm on August 21st, and look forward to the Cows on the Concourse event being back next June on the capitol square.
