CLIFTON PARK — The New York Animal Agriculture Coalition (NYAAC) presented a $1,000 check on Friday, May 7 to Shenendehowa Middle School students and Technology Teachers Andy Mink and Rock Travis, for volunteering to help build life-size cow displays. The dairy cows are part of a statewide effort to educate New Yorkers on all things dairy. The cows will be traveling across the state beginning in June, which is National Dairy Month. A total of 12 students participated in the effort to build the bases for the cows. 

The cows were picked up from the school on Friday, May 7 by NYAAC Executive Director Eileen Jensen. They are now traveling to Central New York to be delivered to artists who were selected through an RFP process to paint the cows, highlighting dairy farms, dairy products, and farm facts. 

Once complete, the cows will kick-off #DiscoverNYDairy – a social media campaign aimed at highlighting the faces and farms behind our food, and to educate New Yorkers on all things dairy. The cows will visit well-known landmarks, destinations, and restaurants across the state. The cows will travel from Central New York down to Long Island and back up again, stopping at familiar places where dairy products are sold to help New Yorkers discover delicious dairy products, and the faces and farms that help get those products to our kitchen tables.

How to #DiscoverNYDairy 

NYAAC’s Discovery NY Dairy campaign will launch on social media during National Dairy Month in June. You can follow along on NYAAC’s social media pages.
