The Leadership Team models the way for all our employees by framing every activity and decision it makes around the questions, “Is it the right thing to do?” and, “Does it drive us towards completion of our mission?” It’s simple, but it seems that, when framed in these terms, every issue, be it with vendors, customers, employees or the community at large yields consistently fair, quality outcomes. Our employees have quickly embraced this approach to doing business and feel empowered to make decisions and act accordingly knowing they will be supported.”

As with the agricultural industry , 2008, 2009 and early 2010 were 30 of of the worst months in the last thirty years for the entire dairy industry and specifically for dairy farmers in Colorado. Declining milk prices, increased feed and energy costs, coupled with the failure of one of the largest local dairy industry lenders, New Frontier Bank, led to the perfect storm for Colorado dairy farmers.
The opening of a new Laprino Foods Plant in Greeley will ultimately lead to the need for additional milk generation in the state, which will open up new opportunities for Dairy Specialists to participate in the design and construction of new dairy parlors as well as in the expansion of existing facilities. Ongoing innovations and involvement in bringing green energy and efficient waste management technologies to agriculture and the community as a whole, represent realistic opportunities for growth. The prospects for a good year in 2011 are looking up for the Colorado Dairy Industry.
