About Us

The Midwest’s Most Trusted Advocate for Dairy Farmers

FarmFirst Dairy Cooperative grew out of a rich dairy heritage, based on grassroots leadership and representation that has always focused on serving its dairy farmers members. That focus remains, which is why members know that FarmFirst is their most trusted advocate, here at home and in Washington, D.C. FarmFirst maintains a continual presence on important ag issues, to ensure that the concerns and insight from Midwest dairy farmers are heard by Congressional leaders on Capitol Hill.

Being an advocate for dairy farmers also means offering programs that best serve the needs of the cooperative members. Membership participation and feedback has helped establish all that the cooperative offers today. Our diverse listing of services is what makes FarmFirst stand out among the rest.
