Environment

The environment module builds on the success of provincial environmental farm plan programs. These plans have been successful and have greatly improved the impact of farming practices on the local environment.  Over the past 20 years, about 70% of dairy farms in Canada have completed one of these plans.  

Following a pilot project of this module in 2016, Dairy Farmers of Canada decided to make changes to the draft program. The module will proceed in phases, with the first phase requiring every farm to have an up-to-date environmental farm plan. The second phase remains under discussion.
