About Us

Nevada is home to just over 20 dairy farms ranging in size from 500 cows to over 25,000 cows, and as a state, ranks 32nd in milk production by volume. The region is excellent for growing forages and providing a dry, comfortable climate for dairy cows. Much of the fluid milk stays in Nevada – supplying 3 fluid milk plants and 1 milk powder plant. The milk powder produced in Nevada supplies high quality protein to people all over the world. Though Nevada is a small milk producing state (just 0.3% of the country’s total milk volume), it is a significant contributor to the local economy and can supply its entire population with fluid milk.
