Dairy Environmental Handbook

The Dairy Environmental Handbook is a comprehensive resource that includes many of the environmental best management practices available to dairy producers.

This book is the product of a joint effort by the National Milk Producers Federation and USDA’s Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) to provide dairy producers and professionals with initial environmental management guidance for dairy operations. This handbook was made possible through the generous financial support of the Phillip Morris Family of Companies, USDA and several sponsors.

The complete handbook is available from NMPF on CD. The CD format also includes the NRCS CORE 4 Conservation Guide, a land application guide and other environmental management tools from USDA for dairy producers.

To request a handbook on CD, please email Beverly Hampton.
