In our Good Cow reverse osmosis process, we extract approximately 60% of the water that is found in milk. We then use that water inside of our facilities for preliminary wash downs and for irrigation of our fields.
Our process is directly on farm, so most of the milk that we use does not ever see the inside of a milk tanker—it gets pumped directly from the farms tanks to our processing facility. Therefore, no diesel is used to haul the milk to our processing site.
When we do ship our finished products, we are shipping 4 pounds instead of 9 pounds—think of all the fuel we save!
