We Are Dairy Award
Celebrating the outstanding actions our dairy farmers take to protect the land and the welfare of their animals
Diversey’s agriculture hygiene brand Deosan, together with leading industry consultants, Promar International, have announced Fen Farm, a third-generation family dairy farm in Suffolk milking 300 Montbeliarde cows, is the winner of the #WeAreDairy Award. The global award was launched in February 2021, with the aim of recognising, celebrating and publicising the positive innovations, improvements and actions being made on dairy farms on a global scale.
The judging panel was particularly impressed with Fen Farm’s ingenuity and thorough research into each of its sustainability projects. Fen Farm’s sustainability journey started in 2011, with the installation of solar panels. In Summer 2019, they laid 1500 metres of water pipes into a bed of sand beneath a new shed, which heats water for use in the cheese and butter production buildings, as well as the parlour, office building, houses and other buildings on the farm. January 2020 saw the installation of heat exchanges on compressors throughout the farm, harnessing heat and using it to cool milk and heat the preheat tank.
