Idaho DHIA is a member owned and controlled organization that strives to serve members’ needs concerning management of dairy records and information. First and most important, Idaho DHIA’s goal is to support dairy producers and milk testing supervisors by being a resource that provides information for the individual management of each dairy operation. Idaho DHIA can provide you with unbiased information concerning certified milk testing supervisors, data records processing centers, and dairy management software.

Idaho DHIA understands the shift in dairy management to incorporate new technologies in hopes of enhancing the dairy’s efficiency and bottom line. Our goal is to be a provider of choice to support your need for management information technology – from management software to computers and hardware, or RFID management and the internet to facility networking and beyond, we will work to satisfy your technology needs.

A well trained and professional supervisor equipped with clean, accurate equipment is the foundation of most testing programs. Reliable, accurate information with a minimum disruption of test day is the objective. Coupling this information with a dairy management software program that fits your style is our goal.

Idaho DHIA is committed to offering ideas and support, which will increase the value you receive from the information collected. We will act as a conduit from numerous sources like other dairymen, data records processing center's (DRPC), universities, industry, USDA, National DHIA and many more to present you with as much information as you desire.

Additionally, Idaho DHIA represents dairy management information interests in a variety of venues. At the state and local level Idaho DHIA participates when appropriate, such as with issues like National Animal ID and Dairy Extension. As an active member of National DHIA, Idaho DHIA has valuable insight and contribution to national and international issues and organizations. 

If you are participating in breed association programs or young sire programs Idaho DHIA is a local route for information to flow to the genetic evaluation program at CDCB. We are also responsible for assuring the quality of records used by the breed associations’ production records and the young sire programs with their reward programs.

In summary Idaho DHIA is controlled by a board of dairy producers like yourself, is committed to work efficiently and effectively to help you obtain the kind of information and technical support you need to manage your operation.
