Dairy Farmers of America’s (DFA) Members of Distinction program honors members who embody the Cooperative’s core values and excel on their operations, in their communities and in the industry. Each year, one member farm from each of DFA’s seven regional Areas is honored during the Annual Banquet at DFA’s Annual Meeting. The 2018 Western Area Members of Distinction are:
Perazzo Family, Perazzo Brothers Dairy – Fallon, Nev.
As a third-generation family farm, Perazzo Brothers Dairy has a rich history, which brothers Alan and David hope to pass on to their sons, Brent, Daniel and Michael. In 2014, the family caught a big break with the opening of a new DFA processing facility in Fallon, Nev. This enabled them to grow from milking about 450 cows to 900 cows today, and the family hopes to expand to milk even more cows in the future. In addition to the farm’s recent growth, the Perazzo family dedicates time to preserving their history with the building of a farm museum, which they use to help educate the local community.
