Dennis, Dennis, Jr. and Pete Schouten / D&L Dairy / Stephenville, Texas

At DFA, We live by our values every day. Values that were developed by our Board. Values that bind the entire Cooperative to our family farmer-owners and strengthen the connection with our employees, our customers, our consumers, our partners in the dairy industry and all the communities that DFA touches.

Our Values

Integrity - We act ethically in all matters without exception.

Community - We are a community of American family farmers and employees bound by our shared values. We understand our impact on society and our role as part of the billion-person-strong global dairy community. This connection inspires us to be an integral part of all the communities we touch, starting with the local towns where we live, work and raise our families, to those communities we reach with our products.

Quality - We are committed to quality — the quality of our farms, our plants, our products, our brands, our services and our way of doing business.

Passion - We are passionate about the land we are charged to protect, the animals we care for, the employees we work with, our Cooperative and the communities we serve. This passion fuels us to be the best at what we do — delivering all the possibilities of dairy to our neighbors down the road and around the world.
