Board & Staff


The affairs of the Association are managed by a board of directors with four additional ex-officio members.

The board consists of dairy producer and dairy industry representatives, a representative from the Iowa Dairy Herd Improvement Association, the Northeast Iowa Community-Based Dairy Foundation, the Western Iowa Dairy Alliance, the Iowa Secretary of Agriculture, the professor in charge of Dairy Science at Iowa State University, the head of the Food Science and Human Nutrition Department at Iowa State University and the dean of the College of Agriculture at Iowa State University. The remaining seats on the board are selected by the delegate body from the producer member population at large.
