100% participation in the National Dairy FARM Animal Care Program.

Quality milk begins on the farm with responsible animal care. That’s why 100% of our farmer-members participate in the FARM (Farmers Assuring Responsible Management) Program from the National Milk Producers Federation.

The FARM Program provides animal care guidelines for every cow and calf on the farm. It’s a requirement for any dairy farmer who wants to become a Foremost Farms member.


We’re coming together as a dairy community to progress common goals.

Foremost Farms USA has proudly adopted the U.S. Dairy Stewardship Commitment, affirming to our customers, our consumers and the global marketplace our pledge to responsible dairy production as we nourish the communities we serve. We join other dairy cooperatives and companies around the country in working hard to assure best practices in important areas like animal care, the environment and food safety.

Dairy Stewardship Commitment

We do what’s best for our planet, our people and our communities.

We believe sustainability is a journey of continuous improvement. For years, we’ve being working to reduce our environmental impact.

At Foremost Farms, we track performance indicators that are part of the Global Reporting Initiative’s Sustainability Reporting Guidelines. These include energy use, water use and wastewater management, greenhouse gas emissions and community donations.


We support local communities and ag organizations.

We give back more than $350,000 annually to local organizations and events that are important to our employees and our member-owners. Much of this goes to support hospitals, fire departments and emergency responders in communities where we have facilities.

In the world of agriculture, we support:

  • Center for Dairy Research at the
    University of Wisconsin-Madison
  • June Dairy breakfasts and ag events

  • State 4-H and FFA Foundations
  • College scholarships for the children of members and employees

Ready to work for a business that’s serious about sustainability?

We’re always looking for people who believe in doing well by doing good.
