Environmental stewardship has a lot of definitions, all of which are essential for the farm business to truly thrive. One that is particularly near and dear to all dairy farmers is having a commitment to our planet. Wisconsin dairy farmers have a long history of protecting their land and water for the future of their families, farms and communities. After all, without acting as environmental stewards, how would a dairy farm family preserve their land for future generations?
Our dairy farm families are committed to sustaining and preserving the environment by finding new and better ways to care for and manage land and water resources. For example, Wisconsin has over 28 dairy-farmer-led watershed groups that protect hundreds of thousands acres of land and water. Our farmers continue to innovate in their sustainable farming practices to keep it that way.
