Landcare Australia has partnered with The a2 Milk™ Company since 2017 to deliver the a2 Milk™ Sustainable Agriculture Landcare Grants program.  The funding program supports a2 Milk™ farmers to undertake projects that enhance the sustainability of their operations.

In 2020, a2 Milk™ is providing $165,000 in funding to seven of its farmers in New South Wales and Victoria for their grant projects (see below list of grant recipients).

The projects, funded for up to $20,000 each, focus on different initiatives to enhance sustainability and achieve positive environmental and business outcomes, such as increased biodiversity, reduced erosion, improved productivity, and improved pasture health, as well as energy reduction initiatives.

There are 28 certified a2 Milk™ dairy farms across Australia. Each cow on these farms has been selected to produce only the A2 protein and none of the A1 protein found in regular cows’ milk.
