Milk & Dairy

The Dairy Section of the Vermont Agency of Agriculture Food and Markets has oversight of the dairy industry in Vermont. There are about 900 dairy farms in Vermont milking cattle, sheep and/or goats, and over 100 firms processing that milk into a variety of dairy products.  The Dairy Section is responsible for assuring that sanitation standards are followed to minimize the risk of unsafe products entering the marketplace. The Dairy Section is comprised of a team of dairy specialists qualified to work with all industry sectors along the farm to plate continuum.
