Royal Dairy aims to assist farms to prevent the formation of greenhouse gases while boosting the capacity of soil to draw down and sequester atmospheric carbon.

Royal Dairy and Nestlé Health Science said they are aligned on four key areas of environmentally-focused innovation, including cow feed, manure management, renewable energy, and regenerative agriculture.

The farm’s 10,000 cows produce more than one million gallons of milk per month.

Carnation Breakfast Essentials

Royal Dairy joins Nestlé Health Science’s group of dairy suppliers for Carnation Breakfast Essentials nutritional powder drink mix, which is available at national retailers

According to Nestlé, Carnation Breakfast Essentials Original Nutritional Powder Drink Mix provides 13 grams of protein when prepared with one cup of skim milk – the equivalent of two large eggs.

In addition, the product features key nutrients for immune and bone health, including vitamin C, vitamin D, and calcium.

Net Zero Initiative

The Nestlé Health Science and Royal Dairy collaboration is a part of the Dairy Scale for Good pilot, which seeks to promote practices and technologies that are sustainable, feasible, and economically viable on a commercial dairy farm.

This pilot is a key pillar of the US Dairy Net Zero Initiative, which advances research, on-farm pilots and new market development, as an essential first phase to make sustainability practices more accessible and affordable to farms of all sizes and accelerate progress toward the industry’s 2050 environmental goals.
