From farm to table, dairy is a pivotal solution for sustainable nutrition. American Dairy Association North East takes pride in dairy farmers commitment in protecting the land, caring for their animals and producing high-quality milk.

Did you know dairy provides nearly 20% of the protein in American diets and more than 50% of our calcium and vitamin D, yet is only responsible for 2% of the U.S. carbon footprint?

The carbon footprint of a glass of milk is 2/3 less compared to 70 years ago, and the dairy industry has pledged to become carbon net zero by 2050. Just since 2007, dairy farmers have been able to produce milk using:

smaller carbon footprint
less water
less land
