Long-term success in the dairy industry is built on the hard work of people like Sam Kooistra. Hence, Total Dairy Solutions strives to provide the necessary boost to farms that are one with our mission and vision for the industry.
Sam left his native Holland at the age of 17 and began working on California dairy farms with a dream of one day having a dairy of his own. After years of tending to cattle as an employee, he achieved that dream in 1980 when he established Kooistra Dairy.
