The Capitol building was filled with dairy farmers and industry advocates to celebrate Dairy Day Wednesday, commemorated with the sweet taste of Ferdinand’s Grabbers.

Sponsored by the Washington State Dairy Products Commission and in coordination with the Washington State Dairy Federation, members and staff from the Commission and Federation along with Dairy Women and county and state ambassadors use this annual opportunity to share real-life experiences from the farm and the products their milk produces with lawmakers as they contemplate important issues before them in the legislative session.

500 Grabbers were shipped from Pullman to Olympia this week to contribute to the annual event. The dairy industry continues to be strong supporters of WSU, which provides the industry with a workforce and valuable research. The popular ice cream sandwiches went fast as Capitol campus occupants lined up.
