Within a continual presence in Washington, D.C. and at home, FarmFirst ensures the concerns and insight from Midwest dairy farmers is heard by Congressional leaders on Capitol Hill.
Grassroots leadership provides an easy, direct avenue of communication for members to know they are represented by dairy farmers just like them. The cooperative’s board of directors is elected by all members.
Communication tools and leadership programs amplify the opportunities for members to be involved and become a future leader in the industry. Every member has the opportunity to grow, to learn and to benefit from all the cooperative has to offer.
FarmFirst supports members by providing compensation after a disaster has resulted in milk income loss on that member’s farm. Members are supported during their time of need following a variety of disasters whether it’s a tornado, flood or a blizzard.
Diversification builds our strength, including our milk testing laboratory and milk marketing program. Together, these divisions along with the extensive experience of our staff make FarmFirst a well-versed, resource-filled cooperative ready to serve and provide value to our members.
Supporting youth is a cornerstone in the cooperative’s foundation. Having invested over $150,000 in the form of college scholarships and youth sponsorships to events like youth dairy camps is something the cooperative holds as a top priority.
Building the future of the dairy industry starts today.
