For the first time, the dairy industry has signed an agreement with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to reinforce "shared values" in the areas of environmental and economic sustainability for dairy farmers.
Earlier this month EPA signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Innovation Center for U.S. Dairy. Lisa Watson, social responsibility officer for the Innovation Center, said the MOU builds on the work of the Dairy Sustainability Alliance, an alliance that brings together farmers, retailers, customers, non-government organizations and government groups to talk about all things related to dairy sustainability.
In this episode, Feedstuffs policy editor Jacqui Fatka talks with Watson about the MOU, and the strides the industry has made in the areas of environmental and economic sustainability in recent years.
