California dairy farm families have made tremendous strides in improving air quality. This includes the reduction of both smog-forming emissions and greenhouse gas emissions. Dairy families are committed to further improving air quality through ongoing collaboration with state agencies and research institutions.

According to the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District, dairy farms have reduced smog-forming emissions by more than 30 percent in the last four years.

Dairy families are committed to management practices that reduce dust, ammonia, and smog-forming gases.

In many ways, California dairies are lowering their

carbon "hoofprint."

Continuous education and regular inspection verify compliance and ensure continuous improvement.

It's all connected!

The same management practices dairy families use to protect air quality also ensure conservation of our state's natural resources.
