The Southwest Dairy Museum, located in Sulphur Springs, Texas, showcases the importance of the dairy industry's past, present and future. The Southwest Dairy Museum is funded by the dairy checkoff program, thus all of its programs and functions are made possible by dairy farmers. The museum, which consists of a 10,000-square-foot facility, serves as the headquarters for the many activities sponsored by the Southwest Dairy Farmers. The museum's exhibits include: the life of a dairy farm before electricity came to rural areas and demonstrations on separating cream, the first stem in dairy production. Visitors may also enjoy a lunch and ice cream at the museum daily, from 9 am until 4 pm.

The idea for the museum came in 1982 when several in the dairy industry came up with the idea of preserving artifacts and historical documents related to the dairy industry in the United States, and specifically in rural areas. The museum became a reality in 1991.

Today, the Southwest Dairy Farmers facilitate several different modes of communication to the public, taking the form of dairy research, education and promotion.
