The milk from one out of six tankers leaving American dairy farms now ends up in dairy products and ingredients sold overseas.
With U.S. dairy farmers in a good position to meet growing global dairy demand, the future of exports could get even more exciting, according to U.S. Dairy Export Council President and CEO Krysta Harden in this week’s “Dairy Defined” podcast.
“I think we have great products,” Harden said on the podcast, produced by the National Milk Producers Federation.
“I think our farmers are the most productive in the world. They’re ready to meet the challenges of the world. And there’s a great demand for what we produce. And so we’ve got to be there, we’ve got to be in those markets, we’ve got to be building trust, building our reputation, building our image.”
