On the Moove…Off to PA to make the case to Casey!

Greetings from the road!  We made our way to the Festival of the Arts in State College, where we had some petitioning fun.  Alex was a fantastic cow and had his tail pulled several times by some enthusiastic dairy fans.

Next we made our way to Bellefonte to visit Senator Casey‚ district office.  We met with his staff, who told us Casey has received pressure from his constituents to ‚expel the hormones” and that he is reviewing the issue.  This underscores why you need to take action now for better school milk, and make our voice even louder to influence the Child Nutrition Act.
Milk's here

We settled in for the night at a lovely B&B on a farm in Punxsutawney, PA (remember, the Groundhog Day town?)  Maybe Phil will sign before we leave for the Big Butler Fair.  Hopefully well meet lots of candy apple chewin, demolition derby viewin rBGH-free milk lovers!
