Bedford County Mayor Chad Graham signed a proclamation on Tuesday recognizing June Dairy Month and celebrated with local 4-H Dairy Month ambassadors, including Bedford County’s 4-H National Dairy Month Chairman Kaylin Osterhaus.
Dairy Month recognizes the importance of dairy production to the agricultural economy and the American diet. Dairy Month activities are sponsored by The Dairy Alliance, the American Dairy Association of Tennessee, 4-H, and the Tennessee Farm Bureau.
