The Southwest Dairy Farmers is an alliance of dairy farmers from Texas, New Mexico, Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma. These producers have pooled their resources to provide consumer education in nutrition, to promote dairy product use, and provide dairy product information.
The Lake States Dairy Farmers is a group of dairy farmers in Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio. They are also concerned with nutrition education, product use, and dairy product information.
The Southwest Dairy Museum operates in an educational and promotional capacity for the dairy industry. The Museum provides the public with factual information about milk production, nutrition, and dairy products, helping to enhance the image of the dairyman. Dairy farmers direct and fund all activities in that effort.
A special working relationship has developed between the Southwest Dairy Farmers and the Lake States Dairy Farmers under the umbrella of the Southwest Dairy Museum. Working separately or together, the two groups support and complement one another and the goals of the coalition
