Oregon is home to 228 Dairy Farms. Our farms range in size from small to large, organic to conventional. You can be assured that every dairy farm is a family operation and they take the health of their cows and their land very seriously. Every dairy farmer is heavily regulated by State and Federal officials.
The leadership of the Oregon Dairy Farmers Association looks forward to welcoming you to the Capitol on Tuesday, March 28 from 10:00 am - 4:00 pm.
