Did you know June Dairy Month was established in 1937 as a way to celebrate the dairy industry and promote drinking milk? Today, companies all over the United States celebrate June Dairy Month and ANIMART is one of them.
The dairy industry plays a vital role in Wisconsin’s economy and affects all of us in one way or another. ANIMART supports the dairy industry by providing sponsorships to organizations such as the Dairy Business Association (DBA), Professional Dairy Producers of Wisconsin (PDPW), Dairy Calf and Heifer Association (DCHA), FFA Foundation and many more.

By supporting the dairy industry, we’re supporting the dairy farmer. Farmers care for their animals 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Being a dairy farmer is much more complex than just milking cows. Farmers take care of the farm’s operations, but the main priority is the cow’s health and well-being. Cows are milked at specific times each day and are milked two or three times per day depending on the farm. They receive check ups from veterinarians and even get their hooves trimmed.
Dairy farmers have to be problem solvers and great time managers, especially when it’s harvest season. In addition to the normal job of caring for their animals, they also need, to harvesting the crops to feed their herd. Dairy farming really is a family affair since most farms are family own and operated. No matter the season, dairy farmers work long hours, in all weather conditions and are committed to the well-being of their animals and farm.
ANIMART is committed to bringing producers solutions to help their dairy business succeed. We work beyond products by saving producers time, and money as well as offering knowledge and solutions through our full-line of animal health supplies.
At ANIMART we don’t want farmers to feel like customers, we want to be part of their team and help them with their livelihood.
