Kentucky-produced Udderly Kentucky milk will be used exclusively at 11 central Kentucky frozen yogurt shops. The Orange Leaf Frozen Yogurt shops will use all local dairy products. State Agriculture Commissioner James Comer made the announcement Tuesday at one of the Lexington shops and said officials expect the Udderly Kentucky brand to keep expanding.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reports Kentucky men's basketball coach John Calipari, who is an Orange Leaf investor, also was on hand for the announcement.  Udderly Kentucky Milk is processed by Prairie Farms Dairy of Somerset. The milk is produced by 105 small dairy farms. Comer said participating dairy farmers earn a premium amounting to about $19,000 each, or a total of $2 million.
