DFA PILOT PROJECT AWARDED $22.8M GRANT
The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) Regional
Conservation Partnership Program (RCPP) selected Dairy
Farmers of America (DFA) to receive $22.8 million in grant
funds that will back a pilot project to reduce methane emissions
on dairy farms.
The project involves working with members of its farmerowned
cooperative in California, Idaho and Utah to make use
of an innovative feed additive developed to reduce enteric
methane emissions. As part of the program, DFA said its farmers
earn compensation through a carbon marketplace.
Gary Stueve, chief operating officer for DFA's western region,
said the RCPP grant through USDA will lead to accelerated
adoption of agricultural innovations.
" We know that dairy is part of the solution to addressing
climate concerns, and these funds will allow our farmer-owners
to receive value and credit for their efforts, " Stueve said.
Shawn Osborne, chief operating officer for DFA's mountain
region, said he was excited to see new tools and systems that
will help farmers measure progress and receive compensation.
" Our farmers have been working to reduce their carbon
footprint for many years and are focused on continuing to
advance progress, " Osborne said. " Receiving the RCPP grant is
an example of the leadership DFA has provided to support its
farmers in this area. "
to harvest energy from biosolids that are leaving
the site, " Winkelman said.
The industry could also benefit from more
functional and cost-effective technologies
to recycle chemicals, including the reuse of
caustic materials or acids, Winkelman said.
Overall, Agropur has been able to decrease its
biological oxygen demand as well as decrease its
total suspended solids, phosphorus, chlorides,
and ammonia.
Collins said more depackaging machines will
be needed to further reduce overall waste. He said
Denali is already offering this technology to many
dairy processing customers, and they intend to
expand this effort in the future.
Overall, Smits said the work to reduce
wastewater involves constantly and continually
optimizing to a greater degree the amount of
water that goes through a plant and minimizing
water consumption.
