The largest fundraiser and dairy promotion event is the Annual Dairy Promotion Breakfast, which is typically held the first Saturday in June at a different farm each year. The Dunn County Dairy Promotion Committee was formed to give the public a better understanding of dairy farming. With dairy being one of the most important parts of the Dunn County economic picture, we wish to show you what a modern dairy operation looks and feels like. With your attendance at the dairy breakfast or a farm tour, hopefully, you will leave with a positive feeling about how important farming is to Dunn County.
