I moved to Texas three years ago. My family has never been to the State Fair of Texas, and with all the talk, I can’t wait to see what’s in store for us!
On Sunday, September 30th, I will be at the State Fair of Texas along with Oak Farms Dairy and Dairy Max. We will gather at the entrance to the fair at 1PM to toast Big Tex on his 60th birthday. You can even check out the Dairy Discovery Zone and have a chance to win free milk for a year (52 gallons)!
Dairy MAX travels to fairs and exhibitions in Texas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, and Southwest Kansas to educate people about dairy products. The interactive and virtual fun tour, Dairy Discovery Zone, is geared toward children, but can also teach adults about the dairy industry, along with the consumption, nutrition and sale of dairy products, and healthy lifestyles. The mobile exhibit features a walk‐through
trailer that has a touch screen television featuring educational videos and 150 facts line the walls.
Dairy Discovery Zone’s main point of interest is the life‐size replica cow that can be milked. Fair goers have the opportunity to take their picture with the cow and be entered into contests to win free prizes and a chance to name the cow. At each event, approximately 35,000 to 60,000 people come through the exhibit—approximately 2,000 a day. In a year’s time, Dairy MAX reaches approximately 230,000 people.
Dairy MAX is also involved in Fuel Up to Play 60. They’ve teamed up with the National Dairy Council and the National Football League to eat right and stay active. It also allows the students more accessibility to nutrient‐rich meals. Fuel Up to Play 60 has challenges throughout the year for students, and the winners receive prizes. Former and present NFL players visit schools to talk to the students and educate
them about the importance of having a healthy lifestyle. Dairy MAX’s goal is to educate people about the importance of healthy living and the nutritious facts about dairy while being entertaining.
