For dairy farmers, sustainability is not just a catch phrase: it’s a way of life. By taking small steps to reduce their impact on the environment, dairy farmers are working together to create a better future for the industry and the world around them. The World Wildlife Fund and the Innovation Center for U.S. Dairy are helping farmers tackle sustainability challenges and feed a growing population – all while ensuring economic stability for future generations of farmers.
