Canada’s dairy, poultry and egg farmers are joining forces to support local agriculture through their joint Canadian Comfort campaign. The four-week campaign, which launched earlier this month, encourages Canadians to buy and cook with locally produced ingredients this winter season.
By ensuring farmers produce only enough to meet the needs of Canadians, supply management helps the sector reduce waste and improve sustainability, prevent wild fluctuations in the farm-gate price of milk and enhances Canada’s food sovereignty and security.
Canadian milk standards are among the highest in the world. Our dairy farmers are committed to delivering their best on taste, safety, and quality. Take a look beyond the carton and see how dairy farmers and dairy processors are bringing us delicious milk that’s free of antibiotics and artificial growth hormones.
Farming has never been easy, but farming in Newfoundland is especially challenging – it’s an isolated island with limited land and a shorter growing season due to its climate. Despite its challenges, the Walsh family wouldn’t want to be doing anything else.
For many of us, dairy is a major source of nutrients and comfort. Which is why it makes sense that our dairy farmers work tirelessly to ensure the milk they provide is full of only the good stuff, and safe from the not-so-good stuff.
