Northwest Dairy Association


Northwest Dairy Association is an integrated milk marketing and processing cooperative owned by nearly 450 dairy producers, 68 if which reside in Idaho. Its marketing and processing subsidiary, Darigold, produces a full line of dairy-based products for retail, food service, commodity, and specialty markets. Darigold operates 11 processing plants throughout the Northwest — including three in Idaho in Boise, Jerome, and Caldwell — to serve its dairy farm families. Each year Idaho NDA members ship nearly one-quarter — 2.05 billion pounds — of the co-op’s total 8.9 billion pounds of milk supply from farms in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Northern California, Montana, and Utah. NDA is the fifth largest dairy cooperative in the United States based on milk volume.
