Dairy Management Inc’s CEO confident about checkoff’s future direction

The CEO overseeing the dairy checkoff is stepping down soon, but he’s confident in the direction of the program.

Tom Gallagher announced Tuesday he will be leaving Dairy Management Inc after three decades, but he tells Brownfield he expects DMI will continue to work with the industry to increase dairy sales, and also focus on being more environmentally friendly. “I think more and more because of consumer sentiment on the environment, we need to continue strong on developing the environmental science to have the ability to speak with the science, just like we do with nutrition.”

Gallagher says another area for DMI to stay focused on is feeding a growing population.
