Utah and Nevada rank 20th and 32nd in milk production respectively and produce a combined total of ~1.3% of the U.S. milk supply. Though we are not the nation’s largest dairy states, our region is mighty. Nevada & Utah supply enough milk to support our local populations AND provide milk for other products. Our climate, access to land and high quality feed is a recipe for healthy dairy cows who produces some of the most milk in the country.
Utah & Nevada are home to several processing plants including yogurt, cheese, fluid milk, ice cream, and small-batch artisan cheese making facilities. Nevada is home to a state of the art milk powder plant that ships high quality milk protein across the world.

I loved the discussion we had on the bus about the nutrition of it all. We have a lack of understanding in nutrition. I can't wait to learn and discover more!
It was fantastic to see local plants and get a better understanding how this works and a better understanding of how these places are incorporated in the community, to each other and to me and to meet the people who run these places.
