Calculate Dairy’s Value

Our local communities are stronger because of the many contributions dairy farms provide. Statewide dairy production and associated businesses contribute more than $11.8 billion annually to Pennsylvania’s economy. Those businesses create more than 47,000 jobs and spend about 85 percent of their income locally.
