Environmental Stewardship Natural for Dairy, FARM’s Ayache Says

Earth Day later this month is a natural opportunity to highlight dairy’s commitment to environmental stewardship, Nicole Ayache, NMPF’s senior director for sustainability initiatives and leader of Environmental Stewardship and Workforce Development for the National Dairy FARM (Farmers Assuring Responsible Management) Program, said in an NMPF podcast released today.

“Caring for our natural resources is every day for a dairy farmer,” she says. “There’s a lot of inherent dedication to taking care of the environment, because it’s how you live your life, and where you live your life.”

Ayache discusses the structure of the FARM Program and how it has led achievements for the entire sector as dairy strives to achieve ambitious sustainability and emissions goals.
