An anonymous donor treated the seniors to the luncheon at the newly opened restaurant on Rt. 20 in Harmony. Charles E. Ernesti of Huntley was one of the area dairy farm families recog¬ nized earlier this month for quality milk production in 1989. The local families were among 2,600 dairy farmer- members of Wisconsin Dairies honored because their herds produced quality milk between Sept. 1, 1988, and Aug. 1, 1989. "It takes skillful commit¬ ment by these families to assure their herds are pro¬ ducing quality milk through- • out the year," says Jim Geyer, the cooperative's vice president-technology. "And, we recognise these producers for their commitment to provide consumers with a fresh, wholesome dairy product." Members of Wisconsin Dairies have to meet several criteria to receive a quality milk award from their cooperative. Their herd's milk must hava a somatic cell count (SCC) less than 500,000 and it must have a standard plate count (SPC) less than 25,000. It must also test negative for antibiotics and other drug residues. These measurements indicate the environment in which the cows are kept, a farmer's management of the herd and the cleanliness of the equip¬ ment used. When these criteria are met, dairy farmers who market quality milk through Wisconsin Dairies can earn additional money in their milk checks. In fact, during calendar year 1989, dairy farmer-members of Wisconsin Dairies shared approximately $6 million in quality pre¬ miums in their milk checks. Quality milk has longer shelf life when packaged for fluid use by consumers. When made into cheese, the major product marketed by Wisconsin Dairies, quality milk has a higher yield. "While national surveys indicate that consumers rank food safety over price and nutrition as a key considera¬ tion in their purchases, the dairy farm families listed below are taking extra precautions to assure they Many of the 164 BINGO players clutched prizes on Saturday as they enjoyed an afternoon of games at the Huntley American Legion.

They are assuring that the markets they've developed for dairy products through their own investments in advertis¬ ing and promotion remain strong.
