California dairy farm families are focused on a cleaner, more sustainable future.

MOO-OVE OVER DIESEL
More than 99 California dairy farms are working to replace heavy-duty truck diesel with carbon-negative transportation fuel. That’s one “negative” that’s all positive.
REDUCING EMISSIONS IS OUR MISSION
Here in California, we’re on our way to reducing methane emissions by more than 50 MILLION METRIC TONS over the next 20 years. (We thought that deserved capital letters.)
WASTE NOT WANT NOT
On California dairy farms, every drop of water is used to its maximum benefit. Clean water cools milk and washes cows before being collected to flush manure from barn floors. And that’s not all! The water is then used to irrigate feed crops like corn and alfalfa. Virtually nothing goes to waste.
NO WASTE WASTED
More than 40% of feed ingredients used on California dairies are agricultural by-products, such as almond hulls, tomato pulp, and brewer's grain. That saves a ton of by-products from the landfill. Well, approximately 10,275 tons.
WORKING TO CREATE MORE WORK
The California dairy sector is responsible for approximately 180,000 jobs in the California economy. Simply stated, that’s a lot of jobs for the state!
THE POWER OF SOLAR POWER
California dairy farms are generating enough solar energy each year to power 30,000 homes. All that solar power makes for a bright future.
