When we were honored with the Outstanding Dairy Farm Sustainability Award, it was a very humbling experience for us. While I am very proud of our farm operations, I think there are many farms around the country that are just as responsible, just as innovative, and just as sustainable as ours. I look forward to reading the stories of the 2013 winners of the U.S. Dairy Farm Sustainability Award. Nominations are open now.

As consumers, we all want to make smart decisions, and have access to tools to help us do so. We can read customer reviews of products, scan social media channels like Twitter® and Facebook® to see what our friends are saying, and Google recent news articles.
But, did you know that corporate social responsibility reports (CSR reports) are another powerful tool we can use? With these reports, companies are sharing business principles and practices, collecting data on environmental and economic performance and promoting community outreach initiatives. They provide credibility, authenticity and transparency between companies and consumers, to help us feel better informed when making purchase decisions.
