Why Become An Ally?
Your organization serves customers on a much broader basis than the goods or services you provide and sell. You have the potential to influence every aspect of their dairy through supporting the Center for Dairy Excellence. Our mission is to empower people, create partnerships and coordinate resources to increase profitability for Pennsylvania’s dairy industry. When we create the partnership, your clients have more trusted professionals in the equation dedicated to being part of the solution to drive on-farm profitability and viability.
Referred to as a shining example of a public/private partnership, the center’s programs and resources are making a meaningful impact on individual dairy farm families, allied businesses and on the greater dairy industry. The center depends on support from its Allies for Advancement to extend the reach of the funding it receives from the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture. Show your support for initiatives to grow strong dairy farm businesses and a more vibrant dairy industry through becoming an Ally for Advancement today!
