Economic Impacts of SGMA on San Joaquin Valley Dairies and Beef Cattle
California is the leading dairy producing state with over 1.7 million cows producing over 41 billion pounds of fluid milk, accounting for around one-fifth of the U.S. supply. Operating in one of the most environmentally progressive states, California dairies are constantly improving efficiency in both production and nutrient management.
The outlook for the California dairy industry is driven by higher input costs. One of the most pressing issues facing the industries is water scarcity and water quality management. Dairy Cares and the California Cattle Council commissioned this study to quantify likely changes in response to one of the most important changes in water management, the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act.
