What We Do
Dairy Herd Information (DHI) Services
Field technicians provide on-farm service to about 3,000 dairy farms throughout the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions. The information technicians provide help farms make management decisions that improve profitability, animal care, and overall product quality.
Lab technicians offer analytical services such as feed and forage analysis, milk testing, and animal health diagnostics. The results they generate are used to make decisions that lead to better crops, better diets, higher quality dairy products, and healthier animals.
Farm IT and Software Support
Technology and software on farms improve the efficiency of daily tasks and communication across the farm. These teams provide farms with innovative solutions to improve animal care and farm production.
Agronomy Services, Agricultural Consulting Services, & Precision Farming
Soil sampling, crop scouting, and field mapping help farms make yield-enhancing and environmentally responsible decisions. This group offers products and services that directly impact a farm’s ability to optimize its resources.
Administrative & Support Services
The work done by these teams allows the rest of Dairy One’s business units to service customers with the tools and resources needed for success. This includes financial services, marketing, HR and payroll, DevOps, and facilities management.
