The Dairy Farming Promotion Organisation of Thailand In 1960, His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej and Her Majesty Queen Sirikit visited Denmark and were very interested in their dairy farming. Then, the Danish government and the Danish Dairy Farming Association together offered a promotion project on the raising of dairy cows. They coordinated with the Thai government to establish the Thai-Danish Dairy Farm (TDDF) and a training centre in Muak Lek District, Saraburi. King Bhumibol and King Federik IX of Denmark together inaugurated the farm on 16 January, 1962. All business was later transferred to the Royal Thai Government and became the Dairy Farming Promotion Organisation of Thailand, (DFPO), with an aim to promote the occupation of conducting dairy farms and to purchase raw milk from the farmers to further transform into dairy products.
