What We Do

calf being fed from a bottleCDRF is deeply embedded in California dairy industry and its communities. We utilize an independent non-profit public benefit structure to deliver the best research and scientific programs with the goal of promoting an innovative and sustainable California and U.S. dairy industry.

CDRF supports research and science-based educational programs relevant to its mission through the provision of grant funds. Changing economic conditions and new interests will alter CDRF’s program priorities in time. However, priorities must always be relevant, actionable, and aligned with the goals of the stakeholders at all times.

Generating Value for the Dairy Industry

CDRF generates value through increased milk utilization across diverse product lines. This promotes competitiveness and innovation within the industry while also improving the ability to respond to consumers/customers.

When CDRF project outputs are taken up by the dairy industry, one or more of the following outcomes are achieved.  These outcomes generate value for the California and U.S. Dairy Industry.
