Orton, Ontario [Nov 4, 2015] – Movember is here, and it’s time to shave for a cause. Jaylor has partnered with Mo Dairy and a group of other leaders in the dairy industry this November to promote prostate cancer awareness among dairymen.
The MoDairy campaign supports the Movember Foundation, a national organization committed to raising awareness of men’s health issues including prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health. The foundation uses the mustache as a symbol and suggests men grow mustaches to raise awareness of men’s health issues. Support prostate cancer awareness by growing a mustache – starting now! If you can’t sport a ‘stache, you can support the cause by spreading the word or making a donation.
Statistically, one in seven men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in his lifetime. MoDairy formed to communicate the importance of prostate cancer screenings and other healthy activities to dairy farmers and other industry members.
“And guess what you are not exempt from these statistics” says Fran Bergwerff, receptionist at Jaylor “Believe me I know, I was diagnosed with breast cancer and early detection is the reason I am here today and able to urge you to please have your tests. It might not be the most pleasant thing, or the most macho thing to do, but swallow your pride guys. It could save your life! You owe it to your cows, and most importantly your family – they need you. Early detection saved my life, and it could save yours too. This November I’m a 10 year survivor!”
Here are some suggestions for those who want to get involved now or in November:
- Throw a MoDairy party or decorate your office and social media channels with MoDairy art. Share MoDairy social media content and printable mustaches.
- Start conversations about men’s health by growing a mustache. If you currently have facial hair, consider shaving on Nov. 1 and growing a new mustache throughout the month.

Sponsors of the 2015 MoDairy campaign include Advanced Comfort Technology/DCC Waterbeds, Filament Marketing, Jaylor, Schaefer Ventilation, Udder Tech and Rock River Laboratory.
