La PORTE — Two years after helping carry on a longstanding tradition in one of the world’s most famous races, a La Porte dairy farmer took an unexpected victory lap this week.

On Tuesday, the American Dairy Association Indiana presented Triple M Dairy owner Kim Minich with a signboard, recognizing her as an Indianapolis 500 “Milk Person.” Minich is one of more than a dozen Indiana dairy farmers the association is honoring with the all-weather signboards this month – National Dairy Month – thanking them for their service to the annual sporting event.
