John Fiscalini named "Dairyman of the Year" by World Dairy Expo
World Dairy Expo has honored John Fiscalini of Modesto as Dairyman of the Year for his innovative farm business plan and industry leadership. Fiscalini, a member of Western United Dairyman, has been described as a masterful innovator and business planner. His progressive mindset prompted him to become an advocate for modern dairy and farming practices. John Fiscalini An early adapter of the farmstead cheese movement, in 2000, his Fiscalini Farmstead Cheese Company has become a model for others aspiring to initiate a successful new market opportunity by creating high quality cheese products utilizing their herd's milk.
John's cheese company has won numerous awards including gold medals at the American Cheese Society, California state Fair and World Cheese Award competitions. In 2007, a Fiscalini produced cheese was awarded the World's Best Extra Mature Cheddar at the World Cheese Awards in London, UK. IN 2011, the same cheese repeated with a Super Gold Medal.
Fiscalini grew up on the family dairy in Modest. Since taking over the management of Fiscalini Farms, John has grown the herd from 400 registered Holsteins to 1500 cows, adding some registered Jerseys and Brown Swiss. The herd average is 27,200 pounds of milk, 1020 pounds of butterfat and 830 pounds of protein, with low somatic cell counts. Fiscalini Farms was the first dairy in the nation to be certified through Validus Services, Inc. for animal welfare, food safety and environmental well-being. They have partnered with ABS on their young sire and genomics programs, and conducted on-farm research with University of California-Davis, Zinpro, Monsanto, and the U.S. Department of Energy and the California Energy Commission.
John and his son, Brian operate 460 acres which they triple-crop utilizing a combination of conventional, reduced till and no-till cropping practices. A methane digester on the farm transforms manure into renewable electricity and also produces hot water to sanitize the milking parlor and cheese plant. The digester produces enough electricity for the dairy, the cheese plant and 250 area homes. They dry the solids and use them for bedding.

John was chair of the Johnes Advisory Board in California, and director of local, state and national DHIA organizations.

WUD Headline News, 28 April 2010 [cached]
Modesto dairyman pushes forward on digester rules - - John Fiscalini said it was a newspaper article a few years back that sparked his interest in methane digesters. The article told of coming air and water rules for California's San Joaquin Valley that would soon result in digesters being required at the region's dairies. As the state grapples slowly with an effort to standardize its permitting formula for digesters, Fiscalini is helping to advance the process. The experience has produced a tenacity, he said -- a drive to achieve victory over a process that has created rules sometimes in conflict with one another. June 10, 2010 Capital Press
At Fiscalini, which is known for its cheese, owner John Fiscalini talked about the system that extracts methane from manure and burns it to produce electricity for the Modesto Irrigation District.
Next stop was Fiscalini Farms in Modesto where WUD member and cheesemaker John Fiscalini provided an up-close look at his 1,500 cow operation that provides manure for a methane digester operation that has seen significant regulatory challenges placed in its path.
Fiscalini talked about those obstacles in this video interview provided by the Central Valley Business Times.
