Did you know that Idaho's dairy products industry has an overall economic impact of $11.4 billion?

Today we hosted our first strategic "fly-out" in Nampa, Idaho, bringing together federal lawmakers from Idaho with leaders from dairy products companies with operations in the state.

At the Sorrento Lactalis, Inc. facility in Nampa, the delegation and dairy members participated in a tour and roundtable discussion about dairy manufacturing’s positive impact on the state’s economy. They also discussed policy issues, like trade and cheese legislation.
