GUIDING PRINCIPLE: WHAT GOES AROUND

We believe that by making our community stronger, we will all benefit in the long run.


PARTNERS IN FARMING

As a large dairy, we can make a big investment in our communities. That’s why, when possible, we prefer to work with farmers who live nearby. We buy crops to feed our cows. And we sell or trade nutrient-rich waste as fertilizer. These partnerships mean more money coming into our communities, and that means more jobs, better schools and an all-around better place to live.

WHY DO YOU PREFER LOCAL FARMERS?

It helps us build personal, stable relationships that help both our businesses. It helps cut down on transportation costs and our carbon footprint. And it keeps us involved in the local community as good neighbors.


WHAT’S IT LIKE TO LIVE NEAR YOUR DAIRIES?

Our goal is to become the kind of dairy that people in the community are proud to have around: a job producer, a supporter of the local economy, a partner to local farmers and a responsible, clean neighbor you can live near without worry. If we’re doing things right, we’re making our communities better.

DO YOUR DAIRIES SMELL?

Many residents understandably worry that large-scale dairies smell, are noisy and pollute the local environment. But by keeping our cows comfortable, efficiently managing waste and running a clean operation, we are able to minimize these factors.
