Dairy Farmers of Canada (DFC) recently launched a new website dedicated to the commitment of dairy farmers and the quality of Canadian milk. The website, www.CanadianMilk.ca, provides information about 100% Canadian milk and includes six videos about healthy cows, safety standards, accountability, strict regulations, consistent quality, and innovation - all of upmost importance to Canadian dairy farmers.

"We invite all Canadians to meet and visit some of our farmers on their farm through these visually informative videos," says Geneviève Latour, assistant director, marketing & nutrition communications at DFC. "Canadian dairy farmers are very passionate and dedicated to producing high quality Canadian milk and it is beautifully captured in these videos."

The six videos follow three dairy farming families: the Bouwman family from Chilliwack, British Columbia; the Keunen family from Kerwood, Ontario; and the Irving family from Pugwash, Nova Scotia. Each family takes viewers through their farm and shows them how they ensure quality on their farm from how they care for their cows to how milk production is managed in order to produce high quality Canadian milk.

"These videos clearly reiterate that Canadians can feel confident about looking for the 100% Canadian Milk symbol and choosing dairy products made from 100% Canadian milk," adds Ms. Latour.

Look for the Symbol
The 100% Canadian MilkTM symbol is a seal of origin that guarantees the dairy products you're buying are made from 100% Canadian cow's milk. When you buy dairy products made from 100% Canadian milk renowned for its quality, purity and great taste, you're also supporting Canadian dairy farmers. Make sure to look for the symbol on the packaging when you're picking up dairy products like cheese, yogurt, butter, cream, and ice cream.

There's nothing the human body needs that it can't get from plant based sources. Going to those sources directly, insures health, is less harmful to the environment and is certainly kinder to the cows and calves. The happy images in this article do not represent the truth about the harms involved in dairy production and consumption. With a fraction of fats and calories, great sources of calcium can be found in almond, rice, sunflower, hazelnut and soy milks... Most, just like dairy, are fortified with vitamin D. Calcium rich foods also include leafy greens, and a wide array of fruits, beans, grains and nuts. To get your nutritional needs by going through another animal first seems wasteful and ill advised. Please - Stop filtering your nutrition through others first. Eat smarter, live healthier - Go Vegan.
