For the last year, your elected Idaho and Utah dairy promotion Board members have been in conversation about the future of dairy promotion (checkoff) in our respective states. After much deliberation, they are excited to announce a new partnership between Dairy West and the Utah Dairy Commission. Effective March 1, 2018, Utah and Idaho dairy farmers are working together to inspire trust in dairy foods and dairy farming and build demand for dairy products across our two-state region through checkoff programming.
By collaborating, we can have a greater impact for the dairy community through enhanced resources, expanded reach, and new opportunities. The Dairy West Board is comprised of both Idaho and Utah dairy producers, defined by a formula of milk production and population. The same people and programs you’ve come to know and trust are still here working on your behalf as Dairy West employees and we are more energized than ever by the possibilities to do more for our investors.
As we make this transition, we want to ensure your trust and understanding. It’s important that you feel confident in how your checkoff investment is being stewarded. If you have any questions about this partnership, contact
, CEO. We would also be happy to arrange face-to-face meetings with a group of producers in your area.
