Dairy Strong Sustainability Alliance launches in Wisconsin

Some CALS faculty, staff and graduate students may be interested in the recently-launched Dairy Strong Sustainability Alliance, an alliance that seeks to bring all aspects of dairy sustainability, from farm to table, together to position Wisconsin and the Midwest as a global leader in dairy sustainability.

According to a recent news release about the effort, the new Dairy Strong Sustainability Alliance is a collaborative group that represents all aspects of the dairy community: farmers, processors and packagers, conservation groups, vendors and service providers, transporters, consumer packaged goods companies, retailers, government agencies, universities and dairy and trade non-profits. The goal is to show tangible continuous improvements in the areas of land use, soil conservation, nutrient management, water quality and use, energy use, animal welfare, food safety, greenhouse emissions, economic health and social responsibility.
