Darigold sets carbon-neutral goal for 2050
Darigold Inc. and the Northwest Dairy Assn. (NDA) have announced a goal to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050. By investing in renewable energy technologies and energy efficiency, promoting farm-level carbon sequestration projects and modernizing its processing and transportation network, the Northwest farmer-owned cooperative believes it can offset the greenhouse gas emissions of its entire enterprise from farm to consumer product.

Raw milk may do more harm than good
Raw or unpasteurized cows' milk can hold a huge amount of antimicrobial-resistant genes if left at room temperature, according to a new study published in the journal Microbiome from researchers at the University of California-Davis (UC-Davis). The study also found that bacteria that harbor antimicrobial-resistant genes can transfer those genes to other bacteria, potentially spreading resistance if consumed.

ADSA Joins in support of Research Funding
and other important issues Agriculture Issues
While COVID-19 continue to draw public and Congressional interest, Congress still has other issues to address that impact all of use including research budget. As the COVID crisis has unfolded ADSA has been part of several coalition letters in support of research and program funding. They include:

ADSA joined other members of the Animal Agriculture Coalition in a letter to Congressional leaders urging Congress to provide $300 million for the 2018 Farm Bill animal disease prevention and management fund.

ADSA joined a diverse group of 52 science based groups in a letter to the chair and ranking member of the House and Senate Appropriations Committee urging them to provide the highest possible FY 21 allocation for the Agriculture Appropriations Subcommittees. It noted that this will allow the Subcommittees to support the research investments necessary to meet our nation’s challenges and opportunities.

ADSA provided a response to USDA NIFA's request to ways to improve service to stakeholders.

NC-FAR, a coalition that FASS is part of and endorsed by ADSA provided testimony to the House Appropriations Committee relative to funding in the FY21 budget.

ADSA joined 42 other members of the AFRI Coalition in supporting increased funding for AFRI in the FY2021 budget

ADSA joined other AAC members in a coalition letter to House and Senate Appropriations leaders with recommendations for the fiscal year (FY) 2021 Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration and Related Agencies spending bill.

You can find links to these and other past letters in the Advocacy section of the ADSA site. If you are interested in advocacy for science contact Ken Olson, Ph.D., PAS, FASS Science Policy Coordinator. ( keelson@prodigy.net ). The Science Policy Committee is interested in you.
