Dairy

Missouri ranks 26th in the U.S. in dairy production with 1,073 licensed producers and 88,000 dairy cows. The grass-based dairy program is thriving in southwest Missouri. New Zealand investment groups have strengthened the dairy infrastructure in the region. These groups have invested over $50 million in Missouri, providing jobs and economic growth. The “500 cow grazing dairy” is environmentally compatible and acceptable to the local people.
