Welcome to Diamond D Dairy. Nestled by the foothills in Longmont, Colorado, Diamond D Dairy is family owned and operated by Jim Docheff, Jr., his wife, Kristie, and their children, Joshua, Meghann, and Chisum. Jim and Kristie are a fourth generation dairy family following the tradition of Jim's great-grandfather who started the Colorado legacy nearly 100 years ago. In 22 years we have turned our 15 cow dream into a 750 cow operation with a new milk processing facility built right in our own backyard. In the spring of 2008, our oldest son Joshua graduated from Colorado State University and so begins our 5th generation. We are the only milk processors in the state of Colorado to live on the dairy with our animals giving us the ability to manage every aspect of the operation in great detail. From the time the calves are born, they receive the highest quality treatment. We put much time into prepping our heifer calves so they have the opportunity to reach their full potential as cows. Once they are milking for the dairy, we monitor them daily so we can know instantly when we have a cow feeling under the weather. This allows us to head off a lot of problems before they have an effect on the cow and subsequently our milk. If a cow does get sick she is pulled from the milking string, diagnosed, and treated accordingly. She must then pass rigorous milk quality tests before she can rejoin the milking herd. We feel these are the details that help set us apart. We have always taken great pride in our business ethics but more importantly our animal ethics. We focus on running a quality, natural and efficient operation. We built upon the fact that the dairy cow is Mother Natures recycler. We feed a nutritionally balanced ration using the highest quality feeds available. On the other end, all of the waste produced by the dairy is captured, composted and then used as a natural fertilizer. Additionally, in cooperation with Colorado State University Veterinary Teaching Hospital we perform routine health checks on all the dairy cows, while providing a learning experience for veterinarian students. We also create a clean, relaxing, and comfortable environment making for happy cows and great tasting milk. Best of all, we are able to accomplish all of this without the assistance of rBST and other growth hormones. A new and unique addition to our legacy is Yoforia, happy-go-drinkable yogurt. Our drinkable yogurt is unique in that it has the highest levels of pre and probiotics of any yogurt around. It is also high in inulin fiber, low in sugar, and completely all natural. For generations we have focused on cow selection, nutrition, and humane and natural management practices which have allowed us to produce high quality milk the way nature intended. This tradition and commitment to quality is clearly evident in our product, and you will be able to taste the difference. Stop by and visit us sometime, we would love to see you!
