Dairy Management Inc. (DMI), the planning and management organization that oversees the national dairy checkoff program on behalf of America’s dairy farmers and importers, has posted its 2021 annual report at

The report provides checkoff funders and other members of the dairy community key highlights of 2021 strategies and programs and an audited financial report. It also outlines activities aligned around DMI board-approved priorities that focus on growing sales domestically and internationally, building trust with consumers and youth, and positioning dairy globally as a sustainable food source.

“Our annual report is just one of many ways that farmers and other checkoff funders can learn more about their investment in the program,” said Marilyn Hershey, Pennsylvania dairy farmer and DMI chair. “Not only does the report share examples of 2021 outcomes, it offers links to more information for those who want to take a deeper dive into checkoff priorities and programs.”
