As National Dairy Month kicks off, we took some time to look at what people have been talking about leading up to the month dedicated to milk, cheese, yogurt and the rest of dairy’s delicious offerings. Here’s what we found:
Look Who's Talking Now
While the whole country is in on the dairy conversation, California, New York, Illinois, Florida, Wisconsin and Texas are the most prolific.
When looking at social media, cheese is the talk of National Dairy Month so far.
