The mission of Georgia Milk Producers is to support, sustain and grow the Georgia dairy industry. Georgia Milk Producers serves as an advocate promoting Georgia’s dairy industry and educating producers and the public to help build a stronger, viable industry.
Georgia Milk Producers is a producer-funded organization located in Watkinsville, Georgia. Georgia's dairy producers vote, by referendum, every three years to maintain its operation. Producers pay a 1-cent per hundredweight assessment enabling Georgia Milk to operate programs of communication, promotion and education.

Georgia Milk Producers is producer-funded through a one-cent per hundredweight checkoff on all milk produced in Georgia. Georgia's dairy farm families vote, by referendum, every three years to maintain operation. In 2022, our referendum passed with 100 percent of those voting in favor to maintain our organization.
Checkoff money funds the communication and educational programs of Georgia Milk Producers. Our organization is committed to using your pennies effectively and efficiently.
To provide a direct return of investment to our dairy farm families, Georgia Milk Producers sponsors several seminars and conferences so dairymen can attend at little or no cost. Over the last several years, these have included the Georgia Dairy Conference, Georgia Dairy Managers Series, SE Dairy Herd Management Conference, SE Milk Quality Initiative, Certified Waste Operator Trainings and the Ag Labor Relations Forum.
