Dairy Farmers of America Promises to Deliver

23 March 2012

US - At Dairy Farmers of America, Inc.’s (DFA) 14th Annual Meeting, the Cooperative unveiled a new tagline – “More Cooperative” – which underscores a commitment to delivering more resources for members, more quality for customers and more leadership in the industry. More than 1,300 members and industry guests convened in Kansas City for the meeting.

“More Cooperative will mean different things to different people,” said Randy Mooney, chairman of DFA’s Board of Directors, whose chairman’s report led the meeting agenda.

“To our customers, it means more quality and more value, and in our industry it means more leadership. To members, it means more resources, more markets, more services and more security. We’re all members of DFA for different reasons, but we’re all looking to get more value out of our Cooperative.”

Highlights of Mr Mooney’s chairman’s report included discussion on how the Cooperative brings value to members, what DFA is doing to position itself in the global market and its work to move the Dairy Security Act forward.

The annual president’s report, delivered by President and Chief Executive Officer Rick Smith, recapped the Cooperative’s business during the past year. Mr Smith also detailed DFA’s 10 strategic initiatives, including how the Cooperative’s commercial business strategy brings more value to members.
