How can dairy be part of the environmental solution? Why is protecting the environment important? We all play a role in keeping our planet as good or better than we found it. Upcycling means reusing things in a way to create a product of higher quality than the original.
Dairy cows actually play an important role in a sustainable food system as up cyclers. After looking into those common ingredients, researchers learned that 80 PERCENT of what cows eat cannot be eaten by people. Dairy cows are natural recyclers! They can eat the things humans can’t, like cottonseed, corn distillers grain, and canola meal to produce milk and divert waste from landfills every day.
