The idea for the Indiana Dairy Producers (IDP) came from a meeting of interested producers in fall 1998. At that meeting a steering committee formed to determine how to start the organization.
The steering committee laid the groundwork for the first meeting, which was held in March 1999. At this charter meeting, by-laws were adopted and elections were held for the first Board of Directors.
It is the charge of the Board of Directors to create an organization to serve the interests of the dairy producers of Indiana, to be an organized voice for Hoosier dairy farmers.
In July of 2010, the first executive director was hired. In July of 2012, the organization changed its name from Indiana Professional Dairy Producers to Indiana Dairy Producers.
