Calculate Dairy’s Value

Our local communities are stronger because of the many contributions dairy farms provide. Statewide dairy production and associated businesses contribute more than $7 billion annually to Pennsylvania’s economy. Those businesses create more than 60,000 jobs and spend about 85 percent of their income locally. Choose your county from the menu below to find out dairy’s local impact. *Data based on NASS Agricultural Statistics Data in 2014.
