Protecting our environment takes a herd. That’s why Dairy Farmers of America has teamed up with engineers, nutritionists, technology experts and scientists to lead the dairy industry to greener pastures.

Together, we’re developing high-tech, high-IQ solutions to help us

REACH NET-ZERO EMISSIONS BY 2050.

MEET THE NERD HERD

As caretakers of animals and the land, farmers are the OG conservationists. For them, sustainability isn’t just an initiative—it’s a way of life and a responsibility to future generations. DFA farmers are committed to developing solutions and sharing them with others, so farm families have the opportunity to work the same land for years to come.

Our scientists are always in the lab rocking white coats and searching for innovative new ways to be more sustainable. Their brain power has led to improved feed solutions and reduced emissions from our darling dairy cows.

Engineers are math-minded geniuses. They help us build out our sustainability initiatives and turn our big ideas into reality. Thanks to these enginerds, our farms are transitioning to renewable energy sources like solar panels and wind turbines.

At our headquarters in Kansas City, our employees find different ways to support our sustainability practices. From finding markets for our farmers’ milk to ensuring our farmers have a voice where it counts, they’re working to secure a better future for our farmers, their families and the planet.

We love our cows, and ensuring they receive exceptional care is a top priority. Vets play a big role in keeping our girls healthy and happy. They also work with farmers and field staff to train them in the latest animal care practices.
