Quality groundwater is essential to dairy farming, because if cows aren’t provided with clean water, they will not produce quality milk. Water quality is very important to producing safe, wholesome milk and so it is routinely monitored and regulated on all dairy farms. Dairy farmers must abide by clean water laws that regulate application of manure on cropland. Farms are required to have manure recycling plans based on the physical characteristics of our individual farms. Dairy farms follow many state and local water quality regulations to avoid the contamination of surface and ground water.
