Want to join us?
We’re always looking for good people who are passionate about the ever-evolving dairy industry.


Who we are.
We’re a milk solids processing business owned by the dairy farm families who supply our milk. That’s what it means to be a cooperative – and it’s why our farmer-members have a vested interest in providing the highest-quality milk possible. They own Foremost Farms.

Want to learn more about what it means to be a dairy cooperative?


Our farmer-members own the business.
There are over 1,400 dairy farm families throughout the Upper Midwest who own Foremost Farms and provide quality milk for our award-winning products.


Dairy farmer-members serve on our board of directors.
Dave Scheevel is our Chairman of the Board, and a dairy farmer from Preston, Minnesota.


Our executive leaders.
Michael Doyle is Foremost Farms’ President & CEO.


Your cooperative-run lab.
Foremost Farms has a certified lab that offers updated bulk tank, component and quality test results three times daily. We test all bulk tank samples for MUN, to help you track the nutritional balance of rations.

Antibiotic and special tests – including LPC, coliform, PI and plate counts – are available on request, and results are updated every 15 minutes online.

Members can also order mastitis culture tests on bulk tanks and individual cows.


Your risk management & forward contracting options.
At Foremost Farms, you can forward contract up to 75% of your current monthly milk production.

You can also take advantage of two types of risk management contracts: a Fixed Price Contract or a Minimum Price Contract.


Your business meets customer needs.
Successful businesses respond to changing customer and consumer demands. That’s why every Foremost Farms member-owner participates in the National Dairy FARM program.

It’s also why Foremost Farms is NPE-free and rBST-free – and why our milk quality is at an all-time high.

What’s a dairy cooperative?
A dairy cooperative is a business, owned and controlled by the dairy farmers who produce the milk used by the cooperative. At Foremost Farms, we use our member-owners’ milk – more than 6 billion pounds a year – to manufacture cheese, dairy ingredients, butter and fluid products for various markets and applications.


Visionary leadership.
On January 1, 1995, Wisconsin Dairies Cooperative, Baraboo, Wisconsin, and Golden Guernsey Dairy Cooperative, Milwaukee, consolidated to create Foremost Farms USA® Cooperative. The cooperative chose Baraboo for its corporate office and named Donald C. Storhoff as its first president.

There were 5,300 farmer-members in Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois and Wisconsin, 25 locations, 1,300 employees, 3.6 billion pounds of milk annually and $775 million in sales.

  • Wisconsin Dairies was a combination of 38 individual dairy companies, including some that began operating in the late 1890s.
  • Golden Guernsey Dairy was founded in Milwaukee in 1930 with one home-delivery route and 85 customers.


Morning Glory Farms acquisition.
During the 1995 World Dairy Expo, Foremost Farms announced that it would acquire the Morning Glory Farms Region of AMPI on December 1, 1995.

Toasting to future success are: Don Storhoff, former president, Foremost Farms; Ed Brooks, former chairman of the board, Foremost Farms; Bob Thompson, former region president, Morning Glory Farms Region; and Jim Kasten, former region manager, Morning Glory Farms Region.

We care for a lot more than our milk quality.
Our customers and consumers are more interested than ever before about what happens on farms and how food is produced.

We’re proud to show you how our farmer-members care for their animals, and the steps we’re taking to meet evolving marketplace expectations. That includes reducing our environmental footprint and giving back to our communities.


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.


The benefits of being a farmer-member: You own the business.
That means you own a plant network that handles 6 billion pounds of milk annually. Those plants make Foremost Farms the largest cheese-making business in Wisconsin and a global supplier of whey ingredient solutions.

The size and scope of this plant network also means you have opportunity to develop your dairy operation to meet your financial needs and goals.


You have a big voice.
Foremost Farms is active in several advocacy organizations, including the National Milk Producers Federation, the International Dairy Foods Association and the National Council of Farmer Cooperatives.

We are also involved in Cooperative Network, Wisconsin Dairy Products Association and the Wisconsin Cheese Makers Association. We make sure your cooperative has a role in shaping local, state and national dairy policy.

Our Cooperative Leaders are part of this effort. This is a top-notch leadership development program for members, between the ages of 22 and 45, to train our next generation of advocates.


Your bottom-line benefits.
As a Foremost Farms member-owner, you pay no marketing fees or dues. Meanwhile, our Equity Investment Plan (EIP) puts equity ownership into the hands of our members.

And every year, Foremost Farms awards $3,000 scholarships to members and their children who are pursuing a career in agriculture.


Your field services staff.
Our experienced field services team is ready to help – whether you need technical support to keep your milk quality high, advice on regulatory compliance or help with the National Dairy FARM program.

They can also provide information on risk management tools and contracting options.


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.


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.

Pure, natural dairy lactose that meets your most stringent safety and quality standards.
A natural carbohydrate found in milk, lactose provides energy, promotes intestinal health and aids in mineral absorption in babies.  And with a low glycemic index, it won’t spike blood sugar.
The benefits of edible lactose in food applications are pretty sweet, too. It’s ideal for reducing sweetness, it’s better for absorbing volatile flavors, and it gives baked goods a beautiful golden-brown finish.
