Take Me Out to the Ballgame

Wisconsin Dairy Producers Celebrate America's Past time and America's Dairyland.

Plan now to attend the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board's Dairy Day at Miller Park on Sunday, June 1. For the third consecutive year, WMMB will pair the rich history of Wisconsin dairy with the favorite pastime of baseball by teaming up with the Milwaukee Brewers for a "Dairy Day" game day celebration.

On Sunday, June 1, the 42,000 expected fans (a sell-out crowd) who visit Miller Park will have the opportunity to taste dairy products and walk away with a dairy-themed gift.

All active Wisconsin dairy producers will be offered half price tickets in reserved sections. Options available include Terrace Reserved seats for $7 each (regularly $14) and Loge Outfield Box seats for $13 each (regularly $26).

All active dairy producers were mailed a postcard with ordering instructions and a discount code. If you did not receive a postcard but would like to order tickets, contact WMMB at 800-383-9662 ext. 232 or e-mail [email protected] Tickets for this offer must be purchased by April 30, 2008. Tickets are available in limited quantities, so call today! Tickets are not available for this program at the ticket windows or from the Brewers Website.

Place your order by April 15 for a chance to throw out the first pitch.

This year's first pitch will be especially exciting as it will be thrown by a Wisconsin dairy producer – possibly you! Those producers who purchase tickets by April 15 will be entered into a drawing to be chosen to deliver the first pitch. The chosen winner will be contacted before the game with further details.

Dairy Day will start with what's gearing up to be a mini-dairy festival outside the gates of the park. Prior to game time, a number of Wisconsin companies will offer product tasting of their milk, ice cream flavors and cheese. There will also be a mooing contest conducted prior to the game.

The fun and education will continue inside. Each person who walks through the gate will receive a collectible bobblehead featuring the 2007 Rookie of the Year; Ryan Braun, complete with the Wisconsin Cheese logo. This collector's item will remind people for years to come of the important role dairy plays in Wisconsin.

Please join us for another successful Dairy Day at Miller Park. This event gives us the opportunity to showcase our products, economic value and entire industry to thousands of Milwaukee Brewers Fans and state residents.
