Online Farm Experience
We know you’re interested in seeing where milk comes from, but not everyone can visit a dairy farm in person. Now, you can take this 10-stop video tour to experience how milk from real cows, on a real Midwest farm, becomes the fresh, naturally nutrient-rich dairy foods you love.
Meet Our Farmers
Dairy farmers live and work on their farms and are dedicated to producing high-quality milk. That begins with taking good care of their cows. It’s important for them to protect the land, water and air for their families, their surrounding communities and future generations.
Farm to Table
Milk, cheese and yogurt are some of the freshest and simplest foods we can include in our diets… and all three take just a few steps and a few hours to get from the dairy farm to your table. That’s because the dairy farms and farmers that produce them can be found near you.
Dairy farmers’ commitment to fostering a healthy planet is just as strong as their commitment to producing nutrient-rich milk on their dairy farm for you and your family to enjoy for a healthy lifestyle. Few other foods deliver nutrients in such an affordable, appealing and accessible way.
Dairy Cow Care
Dairy farmers know that their commitment to providing you and your family with safe, wholesome, nutritious milk all begins with top-notch care of their cows. This includes providing them a nutritious diet, regular medical care and comfortable living conditions.
Dairy in the Midwest
For dairy farmers, their job is a 24-hour, 7-day-a-week commitment to their animals, their land and to their communities. More than 42,000 dairy farms across the country, and 7,400 in the heart of the Midwest, contribute jobs and income to fuel our local communities.
Fewer consumers today have ever visited a farm or have family members active in dairy farming. But that doesn’t mean they don’t have questions. Following are a list of the most frequently-asked questions about dairy cows and practices on dairy farms.
