Your Local Dairy Checkoff

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.

The Pennsylvania Dairy Promotion Program (PDPP) is a farmer-directed organization funded by participating dairy farmers to build demand and sales for milk and dairy foods throughout Pennsylvania. Managed by American Dairy Association North East, PDPP develops and implements local programs to drive milk and dairy sales at retail outlets and in schools. The organization also conducts consumer education about dairy through events, traditional and digital marketing efforts, and in collaboration with health professionals through National Dairy Council®.
