From the Land to Your Table: Sustainability at
Hiland Dairy

At Hiland, our core values include "doing what's right" and "being better than we have to be." Though these are evident in the products we make, they're also a part of a larger philosophy that's rooted in our relationship with the world around us. We know that fertile land produces healthy cows, and healthy cows provide fresh, great tasting milk. So we care deeply about preserving our water, land and natural resources for future generations. To that end, we also reduce waste, reuse resources and recycle what we can so that those same future generations will be able to enjoy the same high quality milk you enjoy today.

Our Sustainability Efforts

It's one thing to talk sustainability; it's quite another to put it into practice. At Hiland, we're practicing what we preach every day by:

  • Reducing consumption with energy efficient light bulbs, motors, fans, pumps and compressors.
  • Reusing resources like manure to fertilize our fields or eight million gallons of water from reverse osmosis water silos on our farms.
  • Recycling milk crates, batteries, oil, paper, cardboard, aluminum and more than two million pounds of plastic.

What We're Saving

Our farmer-owned dairies preserve and protect precious resources through more than 1,000 sustainability projects. Here's a glimpse into the results of our efforts. Last year we:

  • Saved 508,000 pounds of resin
  • Saved 115 million gallons of water
  • Recycled 2,000 batteries
  • Recycled 31,000 gallons of oil
  • Recycled 2,500 tons of cardboard
  • Recycled 117,922 pounds of office paper
  • Recycled 2 million pounds of plastic
  • Recycled 6,000 pounds of aluminum

Together, these efforts saved 19,085 barrels of oil and a total of 6,662,402 kWh of electricity. That's enough electricity to power the average American home for more than 228,200 days!
