Seven dairies have been recognized for environmental commitment under the California Dairy Quality Assurance program.

The certifications are part of the CDQA’s Environmental Stewardship program, which involves federal, state and local agencies working in partnership with dairy industry organizations.

Certified dairies attend six hours of course work developed by the University of California-Davis, complete a comprehensive farm management plan, and pass an inspection conducted by the California Department of Food and Agriculture.

The first group of dairies to receive their certificates included: Alderson Dairy, Gerber, Calif.; Bancrest Dairy, Inc., Ferndale, Calif.; Bartelink Dairy, Escalon, Calif.; Bordessa Dairy, Valley Ford, Calif.; Bucher Dairy, Healdsburg, Calif.; Charles Ahlem Ranch, Hilmar, Calif., and Walter Stornetta Ranch, Point Arena, Calif.
