Environment

The impact of organic farming on the environment is paramount as it leads the world towards
a more sustainable growth. Organic farming benefits the land by eliminating the use of
pesticides, insecticides, chemical fertilizers and other contaminants. Therefore the cows that
we raise on our farm are also fed on a pure organic diet, which in turn leads to the production
of milk that conforms to some of the highest standards of quality.

Another important factor that contributes to the production of such world class milk is the
fact that we look after our cows with a lot of love and affection. Unlike a commercial, rundown
dairy farm, where cows are injected with bovine growth hormones in order to accelerate the
production of milk, we allow our cows to graze freely on vast stretches of land and eat the
grasses grown organically without the use of chemical fertilizers. The air that they breathe in
is also pure and devoid of contaminants that contribute to the overall health and well-being of
the cows.

Although chemical fertilizers have been found to increase the production of crops
considerably, they cause irreparable damage to flora as well as fauna. Pesticides are applied
with the intent of eliminating bugs from plants, but do you know that they remain in the soil
for several years inflicting consistent harm and apart from being a potent threat to crops, they
also throw chemical residues and nitrates into the waterways which have a detrimental effect
on the entire ecosystem. And what is even more alarming is the fact that many of these pests
are growing immune to these chemicals thus rendering the pesticides useless. Hence, the
situation is like a double bane for the chemicals that are being used regularly to contain the
bugs are failing to eradicate them while on the other hand posing serious health hazards.

But we value our environment so much so that unlike commercial milk processing units where
wastes are discharged into a natural water body, we deposit them into a public sewer system
for treatment in a proper sewage disposal plant which saves the environment by reducing the
impact of pollution.

Students make allied industry connections through NMSU’s dairy...
CLOVIS, N.M. – When Merel Rodenburg first attended New Mexico State University’s Southern Great Plains Dairy Consortium in Clovis in 2010, she expected to get some real technical book knowledge to supplement her studies in animal production. What the University of Arizona senior didn’t expect was the intensive hands-on experience she would get – as well as the industry professionals she would connect with.
