South Dakota Dairy Producers (SDDP) was formed in April 2009 to represent the dairy producers’ interests in South Dakota. They help share public policy by working with industry partners and to educate and mobilize their members.
SDDP organizes activities and initiatives and coordinates information for South Dakota dairy producers while developing programs to enhance the South Dakota dairy industry economically, environmentally, and socially. In addition, their goal is to unite individuals and businesses from all sectors of a diversified dairy industry to facilitate collaborative industry efforts for the good of all its members.
SDDP’s priorities are to develop policy for future programs and initiatives that will provide for a sustainable South Dakota dairy industry. Some of these issues include legislative matters, environmental compliance, permitting, and educational and profitability enhancement.
