NMPF Kicks Off Centennial Year

January 8, 2016

This January marks the start of NMPF’s 100th year of leadership and advocacy on behalf of America’s dairy farmers. A century ago, dairy farmer leaders gathered in Chicago to create a cooperative organization to tackle the policy challenges they faced. Today, 100 years later, the specific objectives may have changed, but the need for an industry-wide collaborative effort has not.

To help commemorate this milestone, the NMPF centennial booklet is available for purchase for $20. This publication chronicles the Federation’s entire history through in-depth chapters and historic photos. If you’re interested in buying one, please contact Maddy Berner,

The new NMPF new logo, which still features the Capitol dome but with a more modern look, is being deployed across a variety of media, from digital uses to stationery. Starting this month, all NMPF communications materials will feature this refreshed design.

Also on the centennial agenda is a new website feature titled “This Week in NMPF History.” Each Monday throughout the year, the home page of the NMPF website will cite an historic event that occurred during that same week at some point in the Federation’s history. These notable events will also be shared on Twitter and Facebook. The goal for this campaign is to share more about the Federation’s many endeavors throughout its century-long history of helping America’s dairy farmers and co-ops.
