We are one of the leading dairy product marketers in New York today. Upstate Niagara members gain the benefit of "value-added" profits for their milk from processing it at their own plants into a variety of quality dairy products, including the Upstate Farms®, Bison® and Intense Milk™ labels.
We are a "full-service" dairy cooperative. Upstate Niagara provides a guaranteed market for members' milk, which is made possible by their investment in the cooperative and its plants. Upstate Niagara's commitment to quality and profitable returns to members make us a leader within the dairy industry.
Upstate Niagara offers a wide range of member programs, described in the "programs" area of our website. We support a Young Cooperators program for our next generation of leaders, offering education and assistance on cooperative issues and dairy industry trends. In addition, we offer a quick and ready response to on-the-farm quality problems to help members in receiving milk quality premiums. We also maintain strong communications with members through a monthly newsletter and area informational and business meetings, and a voice in legislation matters on a state, regional and national level.
