Jennifer Walker, DVM, PhD
Director of Dairy Stewardship, Dean Foods
Dr. Jennifer Walker, DVM, Ph.D., is an expert in bovine health and on-farm management practices. As Director of Dairy Stewardship, Dr. Walker is helping Dean Foods create industry-leading best practices in animal welfare, milk quality and farm resource management. The Dairy Stewardship team partners directly with dairy farmers who supply the raw milk in order to enhance quality assurance and sustainability processes, as well as to develop a standard of excellence that will provide a consistent and thorough assessment of dairy suppliers. Over the last five years she has had a firsthand view of the intersection between politics, policy, profit and people and how it can drive positive change in animal welfare as much as it can hinder it.
