How are economic and environmental facets of sustainable diary production linked? What would result if sustainable best-practices were implemented in the dairy industry? A case study involving 62 pasture-based dairy farms in South Africa between 2013 and 2019 has provided us with scientifically researched data to help answer these questions.
WWF and Trace & Save, through our partnership with Nedbank, gathered data from farms that are part of the Trace & Save system. Their sustainability is assessed via a platform developed by Trace & Save and accompanies a management system and online platform that measures, tracks and reports on sustainability at the farm level, and is designed for any soil-based form of agriculture.
The research highlighted in this report indicates that implementing sustainable best practices should lead to more profitable milk production with a lower environmental impact. This is a win-win for farmers, for consumers, for milk processors and for the dairy industry in its entirety.
