Wisconsin Cheese & Dairy Companies

Dairy Farmers of Wisconsin is a non-profit entirely funded by Wisconsin’s dairy farm families’ National Dairy Checkoff Program. Applying those funds to smart, strategic initiatives to promote the Wisconsin dairy industry and products made with milk from Wisconsin cows is not only a fiduciary responsibility, it’s at the pulse of everything we do. 

Our programs are designed to help drive sales and volume of Wisconsin dairy. Through our funding, Wisconsin Dairy Companies have accessibility to strategic initiatives and support for their business.


Our sole purpose is to be a tireless ADVOCATE, MARKETER & PROMOTER of Wisconsin’s exceptional dairy farming community. If you have questions, please contact your account representative:

Support Programs

The Proudly Wisconsin Cheese and Dairy badges are more than logos. They’re badges of honor that immediately communicate the superior quality, flavor and craftsmanship of any dairy product that bears it.

Our programs are set up to help fund promotional efforts undertaken by local dairy companies utilizing the badges so you can better spread the word about the Wisconsin dairy industry and dairy products made from Wisconsin cow milk!
