To us, sustainable dairy means using farming methods that have the lowest possible impact on the environment, are animal friendly, reduces our carbon footprint and contribute towards boosting public support for milk producers. This demands continuous improvement of the skills and enterprise of all dairy farmers as increasingly stringent demands are being specified by the consumer for dairy products and the way in which they are produced.
The dairy sector, in part due to its visibility and impact on the landscape, is closely connected with the community. Society appreciates dairy farmers role in and contribution towards maintaining the cultural landscape and rural vitality. To maintain this trust we must continue working on reducing our energy usage, greenhouse gas emissions and mineral emissions.
