Who We Are

The Southwest Dairy Farmers is an alliance of dairy farmers from Texas, New Mexico, Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Virginia, Kentucky and North Carolina. These producers have pooled their resources to provide consumer education in nutrition, to promote dairy product use, and provide dairy product information.

In 1982, several key figures in the dairy industry got together with the idea of creating a dairy museum for the preservation of artifacts and historical documents. The objective of the Museum was to preserve the history of the Southwestern dairy industry for the enjoyment and education of generations to come.

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.
