Dairy Council Grant Funds Healthy Eating & Physical Activity Initiatives in Schools

Fuel Up to Play 60 is a student-led wellness initiative that is a partnership between the Dairy Council and the National Football League. It offers many wellness resources to schools, including Farm to School resources.

Schools can learn more about our Midwest Dairy Association Farm to School resources here. You’ll find a short, fun video about dairy farming (highly recommended!). Lots of other Dairy Farm Facts are available too. You can even request a dairy farmer to visit your school!

How Does Health Insurance Affect Farmers and Ranchers?

That's a question a team of researchers and extension specialists are asking farmers and ranchers in 10 states. Team members are seeking 120 farmers and ranchers to interview about the unique health insurance needs of farm families.

I am also convinced that if we do not defend our Competitive Livestock Markets Act, my children will not have the same opportunity that I have to farm or ranch.
