Dairy Sustainability Alliance® Fall Meeting

November 13, 2018 in Denver, Colorado


Members of the Dairy Sustainability Alliance® and broader dairy community met at Quail Ridge Dairy in Fort Morgan, CO to learn first-hand about how our community is working through the U.S. Dairy Stewardship Commitment (Stewardship Commitment) to continuously improve and transparently report our positive impact. The meeting underscored the importance of working together to demonstrate U.S. Dairy’s global leadership in sustainability and social responsibility including:

  • A keynote address from Stan Ryan, President and CEO of Darigold, that emphasized the acceleration of dairy sustainability globally and the need to compete to retain U.S. Dairy’s leadership position.
  • Panels with dairy company representatives sharing how and why their businesses have adopted the Stewardship Commitment.
  • A tour of five stations – Animal Care, Environmental Stewardship, Community Contribution, Food Safety & Traceability, and Engagement & Communications – which immersed attendees in the defined adoption criteria of the Stewardship Commitment.

We hope you’ll take the time to become familiar with the initiative in the recently published U.S. Dairy Stewardship Commitment Overview and at As you learn more about your role in the Stewardship Commitment, we invite you to consider ways we can accelerate our work together as we invite all dairy companies to review and implement the adoption criteria. To learn more about how you can adopt and/or endorse the Stewardship Commitment please contact:

Our whole-hearted thanks go out to Mary, Chris and Stratton Kraft who hosted more than 120 attendees on their farm for this important event.
