Dairy is among the largest areas of specialization at Herbein. In fact, with over 75 clients located across the United States, we are firmly established as the industry’s top choice for financial services. Our experience in the industry spans all manufacturing concerns, including fluid, ice cream, butter, cheese, powder, yogurt, and by-products.

How did we do it?

With over 50 years in the industry, our team of dairy accounting and consulting professionals delivers experience, expertise, and a broad-based industry foundation allows us to go beyond the numbers. We serve clients in large multi-plant and small niche dairies – and our experts attend and make technical presentations at the nation’s largest dairy and food processing conferences. This experience includes helping clients with state regulatory systems and the federal order system of USDA.

Additionally, we have built a proprietary database that has proven valuable for dairies in the merger and acquisition process, and in business valuations. We also present workshops in which we share our best practices for dairies and teach our clients how to improve their cost structure.

Finally, our industry involvement includes the International Dairy Foods Association, PA Association of Milk Dealers, Northeast Dairy Foods Association, Inc., International Ice Cream Mix Association, National Council of Farmer Cooperatives, All Star Dairy Association, Quality Chekd Dairies, Inc., and the National Society of Accountants for Cooperatives.
