About the Department
Dairy Records Management Systems (DRMS) provides herd management information solutions and software to ten thousand dairy farmers located in 48 states and Puerto Rico. DRMS serves dairy farmers through farmer coops – Dairy Herd Improvement Associations (DHIAs).

Dairy producers utilize DRMS applications and reports to manage their dairy herds to ensure the production of high-quality products while maintaining a profitable dairy operation.
