It's always been about dairy producers and their cows.
As it should be.
Established in 2013, FarmFirst Dairy Cooperative was created out of a deep dairy heritage that always put members first. Today, that farmer focus remains. Whether it's verifying test results, offering leadership opportunities or keeping you up-to-date on legislative issues, FarmFirst Dairy Cooperative works hard to provide quality service, fair representation and timely information for its members. We're member-owned. Member-driven. Member-focused. Because at the end of a long, hard day, what matters most are the people that are standing by you, and your farm.
We're there. That's FarmFirst Dairy Cooperative.
