This Week’s QUOTABLE QUOTES on Beacon Hill


By Bob Katzen


The Massachusetts Dairy Promotion Board in conjunction with the Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources announced dairy promotion grants to fund projects that will advance the image, sale of and demand for local dairy products.

These projects include education initiatives to Massachusetts communities on the importance and nutritional benefits of dairy products. In addition, the projects are designed to make greater awareness of the contributions of the state’s dairy farmers and provide more resources to schools to support the consumption of Massachusetts dairy products.

“For generations, Massachusetts dairy farmers have prided themselves on producing the finest dairy products,” said Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources Commissioner Ashley Randle. “As someone who grew up on a fifth-generation dairy farm in Western Massachusetts, I’ve seen the challenges that our dairy producers face. These promotional grant awards will go a long way to help educate and inform consumers about the environmental, economic, and nutritional qualities of dairy products and highlight how Massachusetts dairy farmers are continuing to lead by example with respect to climate change adaptations and clean energy solutions.
