Awards We Sponsor

In our bid to improve innovation in our industry, we have established and supported a series of awards that encourage others to work on developing dairy farming worldwide.

The American Dairy Science Association DeLaval Dairy Extension Award

This award was created to recognise outstanding achievements in dairy extension. The winner must have made a valuable and noteworthy contribution to the dairy industry through dairy extension in the broad areas of production, manufacturing, marketing, and youth work.

The U.S. Dairy Sustainability Awards 

DeLaval US is a gold sponsor of these awards. They were launched in 2011 to recognise outstanding dairy farms, businesses and partnerships for socially responsible, economically viable and environmentally sound practices.

New Zealand’s Dairy Industry Awards

These awards are now sponsored by DeLaval in New Zealand. The awards include: Dairy Trainee of the Year, Dairy Manager of the Year and Share Farmer of the Year.

The Dairy Farms of Canada Dairy Farm Sustainability Award

Sponsored by DeLaval Canada, this award goes to dairy farmers who proactively adopt on-farm management practices that are environmentally sustainable, financially viable, socially beneficial, and can be replicated on other farms.
