Where it's from

All "Udderly Kentucky" milk comes from 105 dairies in Kentucky that do business with the processor, Prairie Farms. We hope to add to that number quickly to include as many of Kentucky's nearly 800 dairy farms as possible. Perhaps "Udderly Kentucky" will even encourage more people to become dairy farmers.

Here's something you
may not realize.

The number of family dairy farms is decreasing, not only in Kentucky, but throughout the nation. In the early 1980s, there were some 3,500 dairy farms in Kentucky. Today, that number is fewer than 800.


The "Udderly Kentucky" brand will add financial strength to the 105 dairy farms that currently provide milk to the processor, Prairie Farms. As the program grows, "Udderly Kentucky" will add stability to dairies statewide. That's why it's so important to buy "Udderly Kentucky."

"I'm thankful I have the opportunity to raise my kids on a dairy farm because they are going to learn that it takes dedication, determination, and that, even if things don't work the way you would expect them to, you still have to keep at it to accomplish the goals that you've set."

Production at the Somerset plant has grown from under 150 gallons per day to a current volume of about 80,000 gallons per day or 21 million gallons annually. The total product line includes over 500 sizes and packages of dairy and non-dairy food items.

"Whatever you do, do it your best." Along with the hard work of milking and caring for 200 heifers comes a great sense of pride.
