The Pasture Dairy Center integrates automatic milking technology and pasture-based management while looking for strategies to reduce our environmental impact without sacrificing production. We partner with Michigan State University Extension MSUE and farmers to provide education on integrating sustainable practices into modern farming across the state.  

One way we have committed to sustainability is through becoming the frist agricultural building in North America to receive the silver award for Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification. LEED encourages practices that promote energy conservation, water use efficiency, carbon dioxide emissions reduction, improved indoor environmental quality, and natural resources stewardship during design, construction and building occupancy.
