Dairy Farmers of Canada Invest in New Acre Project to Help Achieve Dairy Net Zero by 2050

June 23, 2023 Dairy Farmers of Canada

As part of their commitment to achieve net zero from farm-level dairy production in Canada by 2050, Dairy Farmers of Canada have sponsored a one-year New Acre Project pilot to support farmers in building nature-based projects on marginal farmland. These projects, such as wetlands, grasslands and tree planting, will capture and store carbon, as well as deliver other benefits, like pollinator and wildlife habitat and flood and drought mitigation.
