Newtrient Releases Progress on Dairy Manure Management and Nutrient Recovery Solutions


When Newtrient LLC entered its third year, we wanted to share our progress toward a new economic future for dairy on the part of a number of leading dairy cooperatives, Dairy Management Inc. (DMI) and National Milk Producers Federation (NMPF). 

Newtrient’s mission is to reduce the environmental footprint of dairy and make it economically viable to do so. Environmental and economic challenges continue to be defining issues for dairy. Newtrient’s forward-thinking founding members are proud of Newtrient’s rapid progress toward generating economic value from the many environmentally beneficial practices and technologies available to dairies,” says Newtrient CEO, Steven Rowe. 

Newtrient continues to bring an entrepreneurial approach to our work, including a focus on technology, product and market solutions: 

  • Providing unbiased views of manure management and nutrient recovery technologies 
  • Advancing innovative technologies and manure-based products that achieve maximum value of manure from barn to market
  • Developing market-based solutions that sustain healthy ecosystems 

“Newtrient, through its forward-looking founders, has built a solid foundation in the emerging area of manure management and nutrient recovery. Early actions to advance innovative technologies, products and markets will have far-reaching implications on the environment, economy and communities and deliver future solutions for farmers.”  – Barbara O’Brien, President – Innovation Center for U.S. Dairy 

Newtrient’s founding members recognize the environmental benefits that dairy farmers deliver to society — far beyond milk and meat. The opportunity now is to create positive, economic incentives that benefit farmers, communities, and society.  

Whether you are a dairy farmer, policymaker, NGO, academic or technology innovator, we invite you to learn more about Newtrient as we advance solutions to environmental and economic challenges that will shape the future of food and farming for generations to come.
