World Milk Day: Raise a glass

1 of 1

Across the globe, 1 billion people’s livelihoods depend on dairy farming. On June 1, we will unite as a global industry to celebrate World Milk Day — a worldwide day of recognition for the wholesome nutrition of nature’s most perfect food — milk.

To celebrate, we encourage you to raise a glass of milk to celebrate your passion, your livelihood and your dedication to the industry. Here’s how you can participate:

  • Post a photo on June 1 raising a glass of milk in celebration with the hashtags #RaiseAGlass and #WorldMilkDay. Tag @dfamilk in your post, and we’ll donate $1 to the Great American Milk Drive for every post, up to $10,000
  • Host an event, such as a community breakfast, farm tour or open house
  • Order free World Milk Day stickers and cups at www.dfamilk.com/worldmilkday. Order by May 25 for delivery by June 1
  • Visit www.worldmilkday2017.com to see a list of registered events, register your own event and read more about how the industry is celebrating around the world
  • Attend an industry event near you — many industry organizations are hosting local events on World Milk Day
  • Engage online by signing up for Thunderclap, a social media platform that will automatically post to your Facebook page or Twitter feed to show your support on June 1
  • Follow @WorldMilkDay on Twitter, @globaldairyplatform on Instagram and like Global Dairy Platform’s Facebook page to connect with others
  • Donate to DFA Cares Foundation, which benefits the Great American Milk Drive, at www.dfamilk.com/dfacaresdonation. All donations will be matched throughout the month of June
