Outreach Programs

Dairy Education and Promotion covers a broad spectrum, ranging from nutrition for good health, safety in production and processing, as well as the conservation and preservation of our environment. The Southwest Dairy Museum and Southwest Dairy Farmers recognize the need to address these issues in depth and that education promotes informed choices.

The tools of our trade are information and demonstration, laced generously with adaptability and good humor. Our “classroom” may be our Center in Sulphur Springs, a parking lot, a playground, a fair ground, a gymnasium, a zoo, or an open field. We work in cities, suburbs, or rural areas; anywhere, in fact, that crowds gather with a desire to know and a willingness to learn. Those crowds allow us to share our story effectively with large numbers of people at one time. Utilizing these tools, we communicate a strong, positive image of the dairy industry from cow to consumer.
