about dairy farms

Our History

On January 1, 1998, Dairy Farmers of America, Inc (DFA) was born when leaders from several of the nation’s leading dairy cooperatives gathered to unite their talents, leadership, markets and capital into a single stronger cooperative that is better able to work for the dairy farmer.

Today, DFA is a leading cooperative and dairy manufacturer that serves more than 14,000 farmer owners. We have a strong culture of integrity and transparency, which translates into everything we do and every product we offer.
