Our brand, Verified Premium Plus Milk and Beef, is produced by dairy farmers all over the nation. Since milking takes place 2 or more times every day, an emotional attachment is established between the milkers/care takers and the cows during each cow's milking career.
The careful consultation during the cow's productive years by a veterinarian results in food that is of high quality, healthy for you, safe, and nutritious. Nutritious milk is available by the glass, carton or in delicious ice cream, yogurt or hundreds of other food products. The dairy isle is an important stop in any super market. The dairy cow is an important source of beef. Dairy beef has variety, flexibility and many choices that provide exceptional taste and experience - all represented by our brand "Verified Premium Plus Milk or Beef."
Most of our Verified Premium Plus farmers receive a premium price for their food as it leaves their dairy. An earned and deserving reward for several years of superb animal care. We at the Dairy Quality Center are proud to be associated with the brand Verified Premium Plus.
