In the first of the Alltech E-CO2 assessments done on Free Range Dairy farms, the farmers performed extremely well in terms of the carbon footprint. They outperformed the Top 10 percent of standard milk producers, which means we can offer you an affordable and sustainable milk choice.
Free Range Dairy Network has always been about the right to graze for cows, utilisation of natural resource like pasture, and rewarding farmers for running a pasture based dairy system.
We believe freedom is a right for dairy cows, rather than a privilege. The Pasture Promise logo gives you the chance to vote for freedom when you buy milk, and now you know it is being produced on a low carbon system too.
When grown efficiently grass is a low carbon feedstuff, and our Free Range cows love good quality pasture. We can’t eat it, but cows turn it into delicious, nutritious milk. Grazing is also a way to protect and preserve flora and fauna. Many conservation bodies regularly use grazers to improve and maintain biodiversity.
