Quality Begins on the Farm

Wisconsin Dairy Farms

Dairy farm families have been a part of Wisconsin for over 170 years. Today our state is home to nearly a quarter of the nation's total dairy farms, 95% of which are family owned. Our farm families understand the importance of keeping cows healthy and comfortable, as well as managing land and water resources. Their stringent standards ensure Wisconsin cheese and dairy products begin with safe, quality, wholesome milk.
