Dairy One’s history dates back to the 1940s, when farmers in NY saw a need to establish an organization focused on measuring milk and butterfat production in dairy cattle for the improvement of breeding and management practices. That organization became known as the New York Dairy Herd Improvement Association.
Since then, Dairy One has been an innovator in our field. In fact, we made innovation one of our core values. We’ve moved beyond offering just DHI services, always challenging the limits of how information and technology can influence agriculture for the better. From NIR forage analysis* to Farm IT and computer networking, Dairy One has pioneered the development of systems that provide farms with important data that consistently improves management practices, environmental stewardship, product safety, and farm profitability.
That’s why, in 2017, we’re partnering with Dairy Farmers of America in supporting the Ag Tech segment of the Sprint Accelerator Program, to help develop new and emerging technologies in the Ag sector.
As a sponsor, we’ll be able to support and learn from cutting-edge ag tech start-ups that are driving new practices in the dairy industry.

Some of the topics we’re interested in exploring include, but are not limited to, on-farm data management, herd health and management, product traceability, and sustainability- anything that would be of great value to our client dairy farms.
The Dairy One Team is excited about working with the Sprint Accelerator and our colleagues at Dairy Farmers of America to foster industry innovation.
77 years later, Dairy One continues to be a leader and innovator in the agricultural community. And with help from the next generation of Ag pioneers, it’ll stay that way for 77 years more.
