OCA and our sister organization, Regeneration International, are strong proponents of food, farming, animal husbandry, and land use practices that are organic, regenerative, equitable, and climate-friendly. 

But now some of the world’s largest dairy companies claim they are moving to regenerative agriculture to produce the grain they feed their animals. (Of course dairy cows are herbivores, and shouldn’t be eating grains at all, they should be grazing on pasture.) 

Critics, including OCA, maintain that Big Dairy’s new “regenerative” practices will simply enable them to continue their industrial, chemical, and energy-intensive approach to food and farming, and amount to little more than greenwashing.
