California Dairy Research Foundation
Dairy research is essential to the continued innovation of California’s thriving dairy industry.
For more than 30 years, CDRF has supported the California dairy industry through relevant and emergent research, producer education and outreach. CDRF is primarily funded by the California Milk Advisory Board (CMAB), which receives check-off dollars from California dairy producers.
CDRF collaborates and partners with other dairy industry organizations to best support the California dairy industry. CDRF seeks project co-funding wherever applicable to maximize funding and research investment opportunities.
