1945 European national development of the Holstein breed determined
that milk production and quality of product was optimized North of the
44th latitude. The Fraser Valley in British Columbia parallels the 49th
latitude. Holstein’s like a temperate climate and the Fraser Valley
provides that. The dairy product quality from this region is
un-paralleled especial when compared to products produced in California

Dairy Products are processed with the highest standards in the
world. Health Canada in 1988 banned all GMO bovine growth hormone
supplements. The same year the US FDA certified the RBGH Hormone
which is widely used in US conventional milk production. In fact,
all Canadian Dairy is certified anti-biotic and hormone free. In
some countries this would qualify as Organic.
Canadian Dairy Industry is a regulated market. The Canadian Dairy
Council regulates the industry and over sees production quotas for
Provincial Milk Marketing Boards. This market driven system has provided
positive market stability year after year. Canadian Dairy over the last
year has seen a modest 3.8% increase which is typical annually.
Canadian Dairy customers will never experience market fluctuations
similar to other dairy producing regions.
Dairy Cattle are the highest production dairy animal in the world. They
are magnificent creatures. Due to the nutrient load and especially the
Folate count, HTST Pasteurized dairy represents one of nature’s super
foods and is recommended for a long happy life.
is located on the coast in South-West British Columbia at the mouth of
the Fraser River which travels 1400 kilometres to get there. The river’s
alluvial plain called the Fraser Valley stretches east from Vancouver
for 100 kilometres and at some points is 20 kilometres wide. This
rich farm land is home to the majority of the 545 dairies in British
Columbia. In 2014 685 million litres of milk was produced.
The area has a moderate climate and an average temperature of 12C with
precipitation falling (mostly as rain) for more than half the
year. There has never been drought conditions in this region. The
Fraser Valley geography and weather provide exceptional conditions for
dairy production, and very happy cows.
