• Dr. Jessica Carter, director of the MTSU School of Agriculture, and Matthew Wade, director of the MTSU Experiential Learning and Research Center, aka the MTSU Farm and Dairy, in Lascassas, discussed the new vintage signs to promote MTSU’s famous milk.
The 11-by-17-inch, old-fashioned-looking signs carry the message — “We Proudly Sell MTSU Milk”. MTSU used part of a statewide grant from the Dairy Alliance through the Tennessee Dairy Producers Association to purchase 200 signs to promote both the MTSU Creamery and the Tennessee Milk Program.
