The "way of life" lives on 

The California dairy community recently lost a well-respected, passionate leader, Gregory O. "Butch" Dias Jr. While we are deeply saddened, 

we fondly remember the mark he left, personally and within the industry. His legacy serves as a reminder of the passion California dairy families have for the animals, the land, and the way of life.

A third-generation dairy farmer, Butch worked with sons Greg and Darren to carry on the family legacy with their own children now growing up on the dairy. He would say, “Dairy farming is not just a job, but a way of life.” Butch and his wife, Alice, would say the farm is in good hands.

However, there’s another equally important component—the cutting-edge research underway to benchmark and understand how emissions are created, measure reductions, and identify the most effective technologies and strategies.
