CQP-certified Dairy Farmers Promote Sustainable Practices
CQP - certified dairy farmers know that healthy soils are essential for productive farms. That’s why our dairy farmers frequently apply stewardship practices to protect and conserve natural resources, including water, soils, wildlife habitats, and energy sources. These practices help maintain the natural resources necessary for drinking water, food production, and quality of life while minimizing the negative environmental impacts of dairy agriculture. Their conservation efforts provided an estimated $120 million of non-market values, such as open space, clean water, scenic views, wildlife habitat, food production, wood products, and real estate values for local communities.
