The Premier Dairy Frontier
Kansas has established itself as a prime location in the U.S. for dairies with its abundant farmland, feed supply, and ideal climate. Dairymen from across the country have discovered Kansas’ wide open spaces deliver an excellent business environment for dairies, with room for continued growth.
In addition to a positive business environment, Kansas is an exceptional place to raise a family. Strong, agriculture-centered communities offer top-rate schools, low crime rates and an atmosphere that will foster the growth of the next generation of well-rounded Kansas dairymen.
The Foundation for Opportunity
Kansas is home to a robust and stable agricultural economy, where ag is the number one industry in the state. A vast portion of our agricultural strength comes from all our large commercial feedyards (nearly one-third of all the beef finished and processed in the USA is right here in western Kansas), which laid the groundwork for our dairies’ success.
Our climate is dairy-friendly, too. About 20 inches of annual precipitation falls across the region with low snowfall, which complements the consistent water supply of the High Plains Aquifer for crop production. Where else can you find optimal forage production coupled with controllable run-off for manure storage and treatment, and low humidity for cow comfort?
Kansas naturally has what you need to be successful. So, what are you waiting on? Explore the wide open spaces of Kansas for your next dairy expansion or relocation – the Premier Dairy Frontier.
