SYRACUSE, N.Y. — American Dairy Association North East wants farmers to know the results of farmer-funded dairy checkoff programs. Get the facts while watching the live online broadcast of all breed shows for the 2023 All-American Dairy Show, September 18-20, at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex and Expo Center in Harrisburg, Pa. The livestream will be available on Cowsmo.com.
“With so many dairy farmers tuning into the All-American Dairy Shows online, it makes sense to sponsor the live coverage to reach them with our dairy checkoff messages,” said ADA North East CEO John Chrisman. “We encourage farmers from our six-state region to look for video clips during the broadcasts to learn more about their checkoff investment.”
The videos will air approximately six times per day from Monday, September 18 – Wednesday, September 20, during the live broadcast of the three-day show. The video clips each feature a different segment of ADA North East checkoff programs, including the virtual farm tours, school nutrition programs, and retail sales. In addition, viewers can also learn about national dairy checkoff programs through Dairy Management Inc., and better understand how local and national checkoffs are working together and “Making Every Drop Count.”
Also, look for a clip for the upcoming episode of “This American Dairy Farmer,” our video series designed to help consumers connect with dairy farmers, featuring All-American Dairy Show exhibitor, Reese Burdette, of Mercersburg, Pa.
Additionally, dairy checkoff partner Domino’s is sponsoring pizza for the youth exhibitor social event of the Premier National Junior Events on Saturday, September 16, held as part of the All-American Dairy Show. Dairy use by Domino’s, the number one pizza company worldwide, along with other national foodservice partners Taco Bell and McDonald’s, has grown an average 2.2 billion pounds between 2009 and 2021.
ADA North East will also have a booth in the exhibit area of the complex with promotional items and printed materials where farmers can learn about checkoff programs and results.
