Our mission: "To educate, promote and represent dairy producers and foster an environment for growth of the Kentucky Dairy Industry."
We are dairy farmers, multiple allied industries and professional advisory supporters working together to sustain and grow Kentucky's dairy industry.
Dairy farmers work hard every day to provide fresh, wholesome, quality milk and dairy products to consumers. We love our land, the animals in our care and way of life on the farm. Dairy cows are economic generators. The average dairy cow generates over $13,700 in economic ripple effect each year.
