COULEE FLATS DAIRY

OUR TEAM

COULEE FLATS DAIRY is defined by the team that works together to make this modern dairy run smoothly. Different aspects of the dairy leave an impression on visitors: the sanitation protocols that keep the cattle environment clean and milk safe, the specialized facilities for animals at every stage of the process, and the large lined lagoons holding recycled water ready to irrigate the feed crops grown in sight of the dairy. But we know it's really the people who make this place what it is. They solve problems, spur innovations, and make all of the above possible.

 

Our people are the key to this dairy producing milk in a way that is sustainable for the long term. Want to know more about your food?
