Do you want to speak directly to the public and let them know all the great things about modern dairy farming? Are there consumer misperceptions about dairy that you want to set straight? Are you a fan of milk, cheese and yogurt and want to let others know why?

Here’s your chance: Enter the Why I Love Dairy Video Contest, sponsored by Dairy Management Inc. (DMI) through the myDairy social media program.

If you’re interested in the contest, your video should be fun, consumer-friendly and less than two minutes long. Possible themes include dairy product quality, safety and nutrition; animal care and well-being; sustainability and environmental stewardship; or dairy’s contributions to the economy and local communities.

The most entertaining and creative videos will be posted to Dairy Farming Today channels. Entries are due by 5 p.m. CST on Tuesday, Aug. 31, 2010.
