Today, Governor Laura Kelly and Secretary of Agriculture Mike Beam toured family-owned Hildebrand Farms Dairy and proclaimed the month of June as Kansas Dairy Month.

“Kansas has a strong tradition of agricultural excellence, and Hildebrand Farms Dairy is no exception,” said Governor Laura Kelly. “I was glad to join their family today to celebrate Kansas Dairy Month. We’ll continue finding ways to support our dairy farmers, industry partners, and entire agriculture community to grow our economy.”

In 2020, the Kansas dairy industry increased milk production by more than 5%. Additionally, Kansas produces over 4 billion pounds of milk each year, contributing over $668 million dollars to Kansas’ economy.
