Exhibitors

The California Dairy Sustainability Summit is dedicated to promoting widespread investment and adoption of technologies that address environmental, financial, and energy challenges, along with cow health and comfort for California dairy operators. The Summit will provide an opportunity for farmers to see cutting-edge technology that can help them comply with methane emission challenges, fast approaching water regulations, and rising labor and energy costs. The Summit will connect solution providers, dairy operators and California regulators and stakeholders to help address environmental and economic challenges that lie ahead.

 

Reduce Greenhouse Gases – California dairy farmers are working with state agencies, researchers, and private partners to reduce methane emissions through the development of dairy digesters and a variety of alternative manure management technologies. They are also exploring potentially cost-effective means for reducing enteric methane emissions.

 

Protect Water Resources – The dairy community is working in an organized and collaborative manner to chart a path toward improvements to the protection of groundwater resources. This includes plans to work with academic institutions, private industry innovators, and other partners to minimize the costs of enhancing water protection on dairies, and to maximize the value of manure and manure-based products.

 

Promote Energy Conservation and Clean Energy – Dairies are increasingly turning to energy-use-efficiency, conservation, and clean-energy technologies. Farmers are partnering with their local utility providers and private companies to invest in these strategies—decreasing reliance on fossil fuels and reducing costs.

 

Improve Air Quality – A growing number of dairy farms are working with the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District to convert diesel-powered feed mixers to electric. These individual conversions can save up to 20 tons of nitrogen oxides (NOx) per year. Additionally, dairy farmers are partnering with state agencies and private companies to turn dairy biogas (captured via digesters) into electricity and carbon-negative renewable transportation fuel.

 

Find Cost-Effective Solutions to Sustain Family Farms – For dairy farmers, “sustainability” means making choices that will serve the animals, the environment, and their family and community well into the future. It’s about finding cost-effective solutions that will optimize cow health and comfort, improve farm efficiency, and reduce costs. Ultimately, these technological advances will allow them to continue their way of life, while improving the environment, and providing nutritious and affordable foods for generations to come.

The expo hall will provide an opportunity for dairy farmers and operators to connect with technology and service suppliers that can help improve efficiency and sustainability. Confirmed exhibitors include:

  • Alforex Seeds
  • Baghouse & Industrial Sheet Metal
  • California Bioenergy
