Sowing the Seeds for Sustainable Diets

What is the contribution of milk production on the environment? A local dairy farmer’s perspective

Symposium Presentation

Canadian dairy farmers are committed to producing high-quality milk with high standards of care for their animals. Today’s dairy farmers are leaders of innovation and every year they invest on their farms in sustainable practices, such as the use of natural resources, animal care, traceability, food safety and biosecurity. Increasingly, dairy farmers collaborate with other professionals to improve environmental or social practices, and participate in research activities.
