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 greenhouse gas neutrality by 2050. Just since 2007, dairy farmers have been able to produce milk using:

smaller carbon footprint
less water
less land
