Dairy Farmers of America (DFA) products and brands recently earned recognition with 19 awards at the 2013 World Dairy Expo Championship Dairy Product Contest.

The national contest spans 72 different dairy product categories, making it the only national judging contest in North America that includes all dairy products. This marked the 11th year of the contest, which received a record 820 dairy product entries.
