Our Sponsors

This is what commitment looks like.

These are the people and companies who support dairy farmers and continuous improvement for the dairy industry. They hold the dairy farmers in high regard. Many have walked with us year after year.

While we think these companies receive value for their sponsorship dollar (interacting with the best-of-the-best dairy producers), we know that they support us in principle as well. They believe in producer leadership, and they place high value on lifelong education for those involved in the dairy industry.

We deeply respect their commitment to us. It is by this partnership that we continue to build a strong industry filled with capable professionals.

If you interact with any of these companies, please thank them for supporting PDPW.
