Our Allies


The Center for Dairy Excellence is here to serve Pennsylvania’s dairy industry. We serve as a resource for individual dairy farm families and a catalyst for collaboration across the broader dairy industry. With dairy contributing nearly $15 billion in annual economic revenue and supporting 52,000 jobs across Pennsylvania, it’s an industry we cannot afford to lose.

The Center works to strengthen the industry and individual businesses that are a part of it through our public:private partnership.  Allies and other grant support from our industry partners complement the support we receive from the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture.  With the recent challenges facing dairy, the Center’s efforts have become even more essential in stabilizing the industry and focusing on the opportunities that exist.
