If you have 150 Holstein cows that produce between 30 and 40 litres of milk per day, your herd will produce 4,000- 6,000 litres of milk per day.
Anything over 50 litres per day requires you to become a licenced dairy farmer in Alberta and you’ll need to acquire quota. Why do you need quota? Learn all about supply management here.
All that milk must also meet the rigorous quality standards before it hits the grocery shelf.
But that quality also goes for your 150 cows as well. Through proAction, our farmers must all meet aggressive animal care standards (in addition to many other things).
