June Dairy month is a longstanding United States tradition, carried out since 1937. For the past two years, Jackson County, along with our 4-H club and the Dairy Alliance, has celebrated by electing a Dairy Chairperson. A Chairperson is elected to serve the community through educating the public about the nutrition of dairy, as well as educating about the dairy industry itself. This year, like the last, Jackson County Mayor Randy Heady signed the proclamation stating that the county recognizes June as Dairy month. This year’s Chairperson, Savannah Agee, presented the proclamation for signing. We thank Mayor Heady for his support of our 4-H program, as well as his support for health and agriculture education.
