The Chippewa County Economic Development Corporation works hard to support and promote the Chippewa Valley’s dairy industry. We have helped farmers explore exporting opportunities, improved their supply chain, and assisted in mentoring programs. We have even helped farmers obtain loans to implement automation equipment. The economic impact that agriculture has on the Chippewa Valley cannot be overemphasized.

June is National Dairy Month, which has been nationally recognized since 1937. The Wisconsin dairy industry generates $45.6 billion each year, making Wisconsin the nation’s highest producer and exporter of dairy. The Chippewa County agricultural industry contributes over $650 million to the local economy. This month, let’s thank our dairy farmers for keeping the state’s economy moving and for producing the products that Wisconsin is world-famous for.

Celebrate National Dairy Month at the Breakfast in the Valley drive-thru event, occurring on Friday, June 11th from 6:00 am to 10:00 am at the Eau Claire County Expo Center. Innovating to the current times, this year’s Breakfast in the Valley will feature box breakfasts, which will be available for purchase. When you get home with your box breakfast, don’t forget to pour a glass of Wisconsin milk and say cheers to the Chippewa Valley’s dairy farmers!
