Leaders in the West

The Idaho Dairymen’s Association is viewed as an industry leader due to our proactive approach to research. By anticipating issues and solving them before they happen, we empower Idaho’s dairymen to innovate as we grow to achieve true sustainability. IDA funds and collaborates with regional and national partners to execute research on topics in a wide variety of areas. The industry looks to answer major questions on the subjects of manure handling, crop rotations, air quality and emissions, carbon markets and trading, soil health, water quality, nutrient management, and other farm areas. A few examples of our ongoing projects and initiatives are listed below.
