Cal­i­for­nia is the na­tion’s lead­ing milk pro­ducer. It also pro­duces more but­ter, ice cream and non­fat dry milk than any other state. The state is the sec­ond­largest pro­ducer of cheese and yo­gurt. Dairy prod­ucts made with Real Cal­i­for­nia Milk can be iden­ti­fied by the Real Cal­i­for­nia Milk seal, which cer­ti­fies that the prod­ucts are made ex­clu­sively with milk pro­duced on Cal­i­for­nia dairy farms by Cal­i­for­nia dairy farm fam­i­lies.

The Cal­i­for­nia Milk Ad­vi­sory Board (CMAB), an in­stru­men­tal­ity of the Cal­i­for­nia Depart­ment of Food and Agri­cul­ture, is funded by the state’s more than 1,300 dairy fam­i­lies. With head­quar­ters in Tracy, the CMAB is one of the largest agri­cul­tural mar­ket­ing boards in the United States. The CMAB ex­e­cutes ad­ver­tis­ing, pub­lic re­la­tions, re­search and re­tail and food­ser­vice pro­mo­tional pro­grams on be­half of Cal­i­for­nia dairy prod­ucts that carry the Real Cal­i­for­nia Milk seal through­out the U.S. and in­ter­na­tion­ally.
