Behind the Scenes at Breakfast on the Farm
June was National Dairy Month, and accordingly, Congressman Gallagher spent his weekends celebrating all things dairy at Breakfasts on the Farm across Northeast Wisconsin. Catch some highlights and behind the scenes action from his visits below.
At the Outagamie County Breakfast on the Farm, Congressman Gallagher learned about some of the new technology farmers are integrating into their operations, like the Robotic Feed Pusher at the Steffens Dairy Farm. This device uses ultra-sound to "see" where to move, and operates like one big roomba.
In addition to learning about new farm technologies, Congressman Gallagher also got to cook and serve breakfast at these events. While making breakfast at the Kewaunee County Breakfast on the Farm, he learned their secret ingredient to making the perfect eggs (hint: it's a type of cheese).
At the Waupca County Breakfast on the Farm he not only got to eat pancakes hot off the griddle, but also learned how to serve the perfect pancake. The trick? Start flipping from the inside out.
And of course, Congressman Gallagher shared one of his favorite parts of attending these events: an excuse to have ice cream for breakfast.
A Great Wisconsin Tradition
Breakfasts on the Farm are a great Wisconsin tradition, and an important way for us all to learn more about about local dairy farms and the hardworking families who run them. Next June, make sure you mark your calendar to make time for these great local events. They're just another reason why Wisconsin is awesome.
