PHILADELPHIA — The Pennsylvania Dairy Promotion Program recently named Harold Shaulis chairman of its board of directors.
Shaulis, a Somerset County dairy farmer, has served on the Pennsylvania Dairy Promotion Program board for 22 years. He served as vice chairman of the board for several terms and on numerous committees.
He has also helped the program form partnerships with key industry players, such as the H.J. Heinz Co. Foundation and a local McDonalds franchise group.
“I look forward to continuing the direction we have taken in our programs,” Shaulis said, “in developing new partnerships and innovations with our industry partners; ramping up communications with our farmers, cooperatives and processors; and last but definitely not least, selling more of nature’s most perfect food — milk!”
A dairy farmer for nearly 40 years, Shaulis, along with his wife, Carol, son, Aaron, and farm partners, John and Cathy Dice, currently milks 120 cows and farms 145 acres of corn, 25 acres of oats and about 190 acres of hay.
