In the past year, COVID-19 has led to restraints on almost everything, including dairy promotion. But Somerset County dairy farmers can rest assured their product has been promoted through inventive ways by their dairy princess, even in the midst of a pandemic.

Abby Shuck held the title of Somerset County Dairy Princess for the past year. She was named one of the top seven finalists, and received runner-up presentation and honorable mention (top five) with her scrapbook and speech at the Pennsylvania Dairy Princess Pageant.

She is the daughter of Dale and Tanya Shuck of Garrett. Her reign ended May 31.

Being too busy to do a final tally just yet, Shuck estimates that she presented nearly 125 dairy promotions during the past year.

“It was a tough year, but I feel it was successful. All dairy princesses had to step out of their normal routine this year and be creative in the ways we did our promotions,” Shuck said.

“But I think we were able to reach out, one on one, to many consumers along with help from producers to get the word out about dairy products. Also, I met a lot of new people and made many new friends this year.”

Thirteen congressional members from New England are urging the U.S. Department of Agriculture to intervene on behalf of farmers left in the lurch by Danone SA, the French food giant that owns the Horizon Organic brand.
