Four farms and three dairy businesses win sustainability awards
Four dairy farms are among seven businesses winning the 2022 U.S. Dairy Sustainability Awards.
The awards for Outstanding Dairy Farm Sustainability were earned by Deer Run Dairy of Kewaunee, Wisconsin, Grayhouse Farms Inc. of Stony Point, North Carolina, Steve and Cheryl Schlangen Dairy Farm of Albany, Minnesota, and Bar 20 of Kerman, California. All of the farms have taken steps to implement economically viable and environmentally sound practices ranging from capturing methane to better water use.
Three dairy-related businesses also won awards including Milk Specialties Global of Monroe, Wisconsin for outstanding dairy processing sustainability, Maryland and Virginia Milk Producers for outstanding community impact, and Bel Brands, Land O’ Lakes Inc. for outstanding supply chain sustainability.
The farms and three dairy-related businesses will be recognized during the Dairy Sustainability Alliance fall meeting in Glendale, Arizona this November.
