About Select Milk Prodcuers

As you pour milk over your cereal or add it your coffee, do you ever stop and think where does it come from?
I know, silly question — cows! But have you ever thought further, like where do these cows live? How are they treated?

Select Milk Producers, Inc. takes that guesswork out. You can rest assured that the more than 7 billion pounds of milk that Select Milk produces each year comes from innovative sustainable farming and extraordinary animal care and comfort.

Select Milk formed in 1994 out of a desire by a group of family dairy producers to develop a national footprint for the perfect milk. Founded on honesty, trust, and quality, Select Milk believes in providing their customers with the highest quality fresh milk and doesn’t settle for anything less.

Select Milk believes in operating all aspects of their business with the highest standards, including its cooperative of 99 family dairy farm members, which includes brand names like Core Powerfairlife milkFair Oaks Farms. Many of these products are available nationwide and have opened new markets within the dairy category.

Products & Services

Select Milk Producers’ Family Dairy Farm members take pride in their milk and set some of the highest standards for milk quality in the nation. All of Select’s Family Dairy Farmers milk is chilled to 36˚ immediately upon milking. This ensures that the quality, freshness and deliciousness stay in the milk from our farms to your family.

ANIMAL WELFARE

Care & Comfort

All of Select’s Family Dairy Farm Members participate 100% in the National Milk Producers Federation -  Farmers Assuring Responsible Management Program, or FARM Program. Prior to this program, we opened up Fair Oaks Farms so people could see exactly how our Family Dairy Farm Members operate.

SUSTAINABILITY

With the future in mind

Pioneering the way forward for sustainability, Fair Oaks Farms has proven that using the waste from a dairy farm can be used to power that same farm and more. The excess electricity we produce is sold to the local power company where it is then used by those around us. We have taken that a step further and partnered with RUAN Trucking and have them use our CNG gas made from the manure to transport our milk to our customer’s plants. Many of our other Family Dairy Farm Members are close to Fair Oaks, and these trucks also haul all their milk. We have reduced the amount of diesel fuel used to haul our milk by over 2 million gallons.
