Dairy Industry in Oregon

Three hundred fifty farm families work together to produce our nation’s highest quality milk, which is made into a variety of tasty, healthy, dairy products for you to enjoy.

These prize-winning products are promoted by the Oregon Dairy Products Commission through generic advertising on radio, television and in print; in-store marketing and promotional activities; and public relations with the media and the consumer.
