Producer Resource: Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs)

On occasion, dairy farmers are questioned about their farming practices. With all of the misinformation out there about dairy farming in Canada, it is important that as a producer you take the opportunity to educate the public about your industry. We have an industry that we can be very proud of and it is the responsibility of each producer to speak on its behalf and sometimes counter the negative information that is out there.

BC Dairy Association would like to help our producers be better prepared for answering some of the tougher questions they may receive about their farming practices. It has been brought to our attention that some of our producers have been receiving questions about the use of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO’s) on dairy farms. Attached you will find a resource on some the key messages surrounding this discussion.
