The Texas Association of Dairymen (TAD) has been the advocate and unified voice for the dairy industry in Texas since 1991. TAD works for the interest and benefit of Texas’ dairy farmers on issues including the environment, animal welfare, food safety and regulatory policies. TAD advocates on the industry’s behalf with the Texas Legislature and other governmental and regulatory bodies. It maintains a proactive and aggressive legislative and political agenda.
Dedicated Texas dairy producers work 24/7, through tough weather conditions and challenging economic times.
While they and their cows are working hard on the farm, the Texas Association of Dairymen is working on their behalf at the Texas Capitol to make sure they can continue to provide wholesome, safe food for Texans.
TAD members include dairy milk marketing cooperatives whose individual dairy farmer members produce milk in the state of Texas. Cooperatives pay fees to TAD per hundred pounds of milk produced each month by each cooperative´s individual dairy farmers.
