Oswego County Dairy Farmers Searching for Their Princess

What is nature’s most perfect food? Milk, of course. It’s also New York’s official beverage, of course! Milk comes from the beautiful farms of New York and there are over 100 dairy farms in Oswego County.

Therefore the Dairy Promotion Committee is looking for candidates to be the 2012-2013 Oswego County Dairy Princess.

The Dairy Princess makes appearances throughout the county at schools and grocery stores, health fairs and county fairs, even a parade or two talking about the healthy benefits of milk and milk products in the diet.

Dairy Princesses increase the consumption and sale of fluid milk and dairy products through these public appearances, public education, and providing nutrition information to consumers.

Candidates must be a resident of Oswego County between the ages of 16 and 21, never been married, nor had a child.

She must be the daughter of a dairy farmer, farm employee, agribusiness employee or be personally affiliated with the dairy industry through 4-H or FFA.

If this sounds appealing to you and you want to help the hard working farms of the County by promoting their wonderful product please call Lynnette Wright at Cornell Cooperative Extension of Oswego County at 315-963-7286 ext 203 or email at [email protected]
