The Dairy Cow Birthing Center would not happen every year without the generosity of agribusinesses and organizations in the dairy industry. The entire exhibit is 100% funded through donations, in-kind sponsorships and time given by those who believe in the dairy industry.
New York Corn & Soybean Growers have provided the seed money to get this project started and have helped maintain its growth every year – and this year is no different. Without them, none of this would have been possible.
Cornell Dairy Center of Excellence has also been a partner of ours since the beginning, providing technical expertise, research and funding. Cornell is fundamental in helping make New York one of the nation’s top dairy producing states.
The following organizations are the team behind the dream at the Birthing Center. These organizations and the people within them believe in the exhibit and understand the importance of connecting with consumers about the good work taking place in the dairy industry. As we embark on year six of this educational exhibit at the State Fair, we say thank you to each every one of the organizations below that allow us to offer this unique opportunity to over 300,000 people annually. A special thank you to those whose names are bolded and have been with us every year since year one.
