Milkstan Dairy

Milkstan Dairy is located about 4 miles southwest of Delta.  Tony and Kris Stanworth own and operate the dairy.  They were both introduced into the dairy business when they were young and have been interested in it ever since.

Tony has been milking cows since the early 1960’s when they shipped the milk in cans to the Brooklawn Creamery in Delta, Utah. He helped with the farming operation and did much custom work in his late teen years.  From this meager start the dairy has grown to what it is now.  The family has been involved since the beginning and is still involved now.

Kris’s grandfather owned a dairy in Coalville, Utah and she started helping at an early age.  As a teenager she helped with the care of both cows and calves and helped with harvesting hay and grains.

Tony’s father, Conard Stanworth, built the dairy facility that Tony is milking in now in 1972 with the help of Tony and Tony’s brothers and mother.  This facility has been owned and operated by the Stanworth family since then.

Tony has been involved with the dairy until 1993 when he and Kris were offered the opportunity to buy the cows and lease the dairy facilities from Tony’s father.  Since then Tony and Kris have milked their cows there with the help of their children.

Rain, snow or shine the cows always have to be milked, fed and cared for.  Knowing this has made the dairy a prime place to teach their children the importance of hard work and dependability.  Hard work has its own way of teaching how to meet a challenge and  work through hard times.

When asked why they stay in the business, Tony answers that he is too old to start over and too young to quit.  Tony and Kris enjoy the challenge and the pride in producing a quality product.

Along with the dairy, Tony serves as regional representative for the Utah Dairy Commission.

Doubletree Dairy Farms

Members since January 2005: Doubletree Dairy Farm is focusing on Breeding, working with, and developing the best Holstein Dairy Cows available today. With our 50+ years experience we have have found that productive cattle that also have a more desirable comformation are more enjoyable to work with. We enjoy working with cattle that are pleasant to work with and have exceptional, comformational feet, legs and mamary.

We are a family run farm that enjoys working with and caring for our cattle. Our goal is to not only breed, but to work with the best cattle possible. Over the years we have partnered with several animals which we have helped grow and develop and eventually show in the big shows. We appreciate those great individual animals and their breeders for allowing us the opportunity to work with their great cattle.

Our philosophy is simple, we use all modern tools available for sire selection. However we use what we think is missing for most dairymen that is the look/see method. We believe a very important tool in breeding is to actually see the bulls daughters and dams when ever possible. In todays environment it takes a little more effort. The current Holstein lists of bulls in dairy magazines is nice reading material but often fails to factor in the most important traits we should be using.

We go to great lengths to determine how to use each bull correctly. We believe by making as correct a mating as possible we can have some assurance we will continue to develop great individuals.

Andrade Dairy & Farms

Established in 1981 by Joe and Gloria Andrade and their children Cindy and David members since August 2003.

They ran the family farm by purchasing 60 Holstein cows and started milking and farming in Hilmar, California. Gloria milked cows while Joe took care of the outside chores, and Cindy and David helped where they could.

The family dairy did well and the herd continued to grow with calves maturing into cows over the years. The Andrade Family was milking over 500 Holstein cows when Joe and Gloria were finally looking to purchase a dairy that was large enough to accommodate all the herd’s cows and young stock, and still have room to grow.

With limited expansion abilities and high land values in California, Joe and Gloria moved their family farm to Utah’s Millard County where they purchased their own land in 1993. Quickly brush ground was developed into the family’s new dairy facility with their house above the milk barn.

Cindy left for college and majored in Communications with an English minor, and David was given more responsibility in caring for the milk cows. David graduated from Delta High School and then pursued college at Southern Utah University where he majored in Music Education. After he graduated he taught music at Delta Middle School.

The Andrade Dairy and Farms were expanded in 2004 to include another dairy in Sanpete county. In 2007, as Joe was transporting feed to the Sanpete county Dairy; he lost control of his truck when the front tire blew and passed away. David stepped away from teaching to help his mother manage both dairies.

Gloria and David love working in the Dairy Industry and look forward to the launch of “Utah Farms” chocolate milk and eggnog.

Crossroads Dairy, LLC

Crossroads Dairy’s story is one of “Modern Day American Pioneers”.  Bob Viveiros, born & raised on his Dad’s California dairy, recognized economic concerns in that State back in the 1990’s. Researching other States for a possible healthier economic environment, as well as healthier family environment, landed him on choosing Utah.  His cousin, Tony Cabral, also raised in dairy, heard of Bob’s attempts to move to Utah, and wanted to be on board.  May of 1999, Bob & Tony started their dairy in Delta, Utah, with nothing but prayers, dairy know-how, and hard working ethics.  They left all that they knew behind for a better future.   Family and their Christian beliefs being priority, has seen them through years of hard work and hard times.  They have grown a beautiful herd of dairy cows and produce high quality milk.  Tony’s grown sons, Anthony & Tim started working at the family farm in 2005.  Bob’s son, Michael,  6 yrs old, helps his Dad when possible.  The sons have helped in growing a strong herd of Holsteins and Jersey cows.  Utah Farms Milk is much the same story in pioneering into new efforts to survive.  Years of hard work has gone into the “Utah Farms” dairymen’s group, all with high standards in dairying.   Supporting your local farmers is key to our country’s survival, and Lord willing, prosperity.
