June is Dairy Month and Dairy is Important to Comanche County. Our local dairy families do much more than milk cows, they provide a major boost to the local economy, the dairy industry is vital to Comanche County. There are currently 13 family dairy farms in Comanche County; these dairies produced 649,876,400 lbs. of milk last year. The total value of just milk sales from our county dairies in the last 5 years has averaged approximately $99,000,000.00/year. That is a lot of money being pumped into the local economy from milk production. Many production expenses are paid to local suppliers, and as wages to employees. Dairy Farmers also spend part of their wages and profits in the county - eating at local restaurants and buying groceries, clothing, etc... In turn, the employees of these businesses purchase supplies and spend wages at local businesses. Dairies also pay a large portion of the local taxes, which go to support better schools, roads, etc… Money is multiplied as it circulates through the economy. Consider that economists tell us this income will turn over approximately 2 times in the community where it was made and you can see just how important the dairy industry is to Comanche County.
