Dairy MAX Spokespeople

Covering New Mexico, central and western Oklahoma, Texas and southwest Kansas, Dairy MAX is an affiliate of the National Dairy Council, a leader in dairy nutrition research, education and communication since 1915. 

On behalf of dairy farming families, Dairy MAX provides timely, science-based nutrition information to, and in collaboration with, a variety of stakeholders committed to fostering a healthy society, including educators, school nutrition directors, health professionals, academia, industry, consumers and media. 

Our experts are dedicated to educating the public about dairy foods’ important role in a healthy lifestyle. We share nutrition education information and materials to support science-based recommendations for improved nutrition for Americans, including consumption of at least three servings of nutrient-rich low-fat or fat-free milk and milk products every day.
