Working with CDR

We make working with us as easy as possible. Since we are primarily funded by the Dairy Farmer Checkoff program and the dairy industry, as long as your project is focused on improving the Wisconsin and U.S. dairy industry, involves a dairy product or ingredient, and your company is based in Wisconsin or the U.S., we are here to help you.
