1934 and
seventy cows

Keep it clean; keep it cold; keep it moving. This is the banner we wave with pride at Plains Dairy. Since 1934, Plains Dairy has built a reputation of delivering the freshest milk in town. Once again, we were awarded a rating of “Excellent” by the leading outside auditing service, Randolph Associates Inc. This dedication provides our member retailers with a dairy program of excellence that is unsurpassed.

This same commitment to our non-dairy production has resulted in growth in this area as well.

When you want the best, it’s Plains to see.
