A whole lot goes into every single drop of milk. That’s why, at the dairy checkoff, we believe every drop of milk is essential. We’re here to make sure dairy will always matter. With research and innovation and marketing programs, we give support and tools to farmers to make dairy relevant in today’s ever-changing environment.
