Dairy Farm Survey: Greenhouse Gas Lifecycle Assessment
As concerns about the effects of animal agriculture on the global climate rise, sustainability has become a mainstream value to current shareholders and a key factor in product branding. It is crucial that the dairy industry be proactive about determining exactly what our environmental impact is. In order to provide an accurate assessment of the role animal agriculture plays in the global climate and improve our ability to market products to “green” consumers, Dairy Management, Inc. is working with the Michigan Milk Producers Association and other co-ops to survey dairy producers and pinpoint the carbon footprint of dairying. The survey is comprehensive, likely taking 4 hours to complete, but it will be a valuable tool for strengthening the dairy industry. If you have received a survey, you are encouraged to complete it. You were randomly selected and your answers are anonymous. Producers who participate are eligible for a $500 cash prize from the co-op. Producers are never identified and farm data are coded by number only, not farm name. The survey closes February 19.
