DFA Receives Award for Industry Support

October 18, 2010

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Dairy Farmers of America, Inc. (DFA) has been recognized by the National Dairy Shrine with the newly established Cornerstone Award for industry support.

National Dairy Shrine — an American dairying group that promotes the dairy industry and records its history in the Dairy Hall of Fame — honored DFA during its annual banquet held in conjunction with World Dairy Expo.

“The Cornerstone Award recognition is a great honor for DFA,” said David Darr, DFA vice president of sustainability and public affairs, who attended the banquet and serves as a National Dairy Shrine board member. “We believe strongly in investing in the future of the dairy industry. This is reflected in our ongoing support of National Dairy Shrine and the students who participate in collegiate judging contests at World Dairy Expo each year.”

National Dairy Shrine representatives also presented more than $40,000 in scholarship awards to two- and four-year college students who are interested in pursuing a career within the dairy industry.
