Can you believe the State Fair is only four weeks away! I am so excited to tell you what the American Dairy Association is doing to begin the celebration! To start the Dairy Bar wants to give away 10 pairs of tickets to the Dairy Bar. Each pair of tickets would be a coupon for a ‘Fuel Up to Play 60 Kids Meal and a Shake and Sandwich coupon. Learn how to enter later in the post.
Visit the fair during the 13-17th and see the real dairy farmers and cows. See how the animals are cared for and actually pet a calf and receive a coupon for a glass of milk in the Cattle Barn. Walk along and visit the exhibits in Our Land Pavilion and have an opportunity to step back in time to see how milk was delivered in the early ‘30’s, see the old timey posters of milk promotions and follow the carbon foot print of dairy farming since the late ‘30’s. Visit Sarah Kaufmann, aka the Cheeselady, and see what she is carving this year to help celebrate the 80 years of Dairy & Nutrition Council delivering the facts and fun of the dairy industry in Indiana.
Mark your calendar for August 10, when we unveil the sculpture for the fair goers to see. There will be cooking demos using assorted dairy products and featuring Ivy Tech student who actually developed lactose free recipes for consumers who have difficult time drinking milk. For the kids on the 7th and 14th we will host the Shake it Up with Dairy demo giving kids the opportunity to drink a new dairy product and meet Buttercup in person
Are you ready for a snack? Stop by the Dairy Bar and enjoy a gooey and creamy grilled cheese, a delicious shake or a dish of hand scooped ice cream! To enter to win the coupons tell us just one of the five cheeses used at the dairy bar. Winners will be chosen randomly and announced on Friday! Have a great day at the fair, we sure are!
