Dairy MAX is a non-profit organization affiliated with the National Dairy Council and funded by the dairy farming families in Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma and southwest Kansas. The group promotes the health benefits of dairy products and the enjoyment of nutrient-rich milk, cheese and yogurt, as supported by U.S. dietary guidelines.

AgriLife works hand-in-hand with its Texas A&M System partners, the state Legislature, and communities it serves. The mission of the Texas AgriLife Extension Service, to serve Texans through community-based education, has remained unchanged for almost a century.

With a vast network of 250 county Extension offices and some 900 professional educators, the expertise provided by AgriLife Extension is available to every resident in every Texas county. AgriLife Extension custom-designs its programs to different areas of the state, significantly depending on residents for input and program delivery.
