Southwest Dairy Farmers is an alliance of dairy farmers from Texas, Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Virginia, Kentucky and North Carolina. These producers have pooled their resources to provide consumer education in nutrition, promote dairy product use, and provide dairy product information.
Dairy products are essential to strong, healthy bones. Here are some resources to help you understand how dairy products contribute to your health, and how you can incorporate dairy products into your daily diet. Just follow these links to get detailed information on the health benefits of milk and milk products.
Spreading the truth of dairy and sharing the story of the farmers behind the process is vital. There are many misconceptions about milk, milk products and the farms that produce it. Consumers should be informed of the difference between the products that claim to be alternative replacements to dairy. We aim to relay the positive message that needs to be told and educate on the importance of milk and dairy in their diet.
Producer funds are utilized to promote the usage of milk and other dairy products through advocacy and education, showcasing the benefits of milk and dairy: nutrition, health, and product goodness.
Education means a more informed consumer; one who can make better choices. Our educational efforts span from schools, fairs, community and athletic events to anywhere the opportunity is offered to share the story of dairy. It is our priority to educate the public on the facts and benefits of dairy.
Teaching kids about the dairy industry is one of our priorities. Our Mobile Dairy Classroom is a traveling milking parlor, featuring a live cow and an oral presentation.
Teachers are provided access to numerous materials that provide facts and knowledge that include the farm to table process, nutritional information and why dairy should be included in your daily life.
