  • Risks are the 20% dairy farms that do not participate in industry programs
  • Chapters that need improvement:
    • Soils, Waste, Energy and Biodiversity
    • Comparable to European results
  • First sustainable supply should be possible in 2012
    • Dependent on way forward (Industry Standard or individual self-assessment process)
