This year was the first time I attended. I walked around with my kids trying different cheeses, ice cream and milk. It may not look like it with the homes being built, but Cache Valley is still the top producer of milk in Utah according to the 2017 Census of Agriculture. If you read the front page article from The Herald Journal in September titled “Goodbye Bessie,” you got a look at how the dairy industry is changing; less total farms but the same number of milking cows. This trend is found in Cache Valley and in the nation.

Globally, consumers can’t get enough of the quality and taste of American dairy products. Foreign exports of American dairy are twice the volume of the nation’s domestic dairy consumption. Last year, about 18% of U.S. dairy production was exported, and economists forecast that percentage to grow more than 25% in 2023.
