Ohio's Dairy Farmers

Ohio has 2,500 dairy farms that are home to more than 270,000 dairy cows. Those cows produce more than 630 million gallons of milk each year, which ranks Ohio 11th in the nation for milk production. Dairy farmers make an around-the-clock commitment to caring for their cows — it's the right thing to do and it ensures the cows continue to produce the highest quality milk and dairy foods. Because Ohio dairy families live and work on their farms, they also make an equal commitment to protecting the land and water on and around their farms.
