Dairy Sector Helps Drive Indiana Economy
16 May 2022
GOSHEN, Ind. - Steve Obert is a fifth generation farmer in Gibson County where the family operates Obert Legacy Dairy. When he’s not tending to the 1,200-cow herd, the veteran dairy operator is leading efforts to promote and support Indiana’s 750 dairy farms. In May 2021, Obert took over as executive director of Indiana Dairy Producers, an advocacy group representing Hoosier dairy farmers.
In an interview with Inside INdiana Business, Obert said Indiana residents who are not connected to agriculture may not understand its value as an economic engine.
