About this project

Project details
This project identified the key greenhouse gas 'hot spots' in order to improve business efficiency and reduce the environmental impact of GB dairy farming.

A number of case studies are included in the annual reports that detail measures implemented by dairy farmers to improve efficiencies and reduce on-farm greenhouse gas emissions.

Reports provide information on:

  • Greenhouse gas 'hot spots' and practical options that could be implemented by dairy farmers to reduce the carbon footprint of the farm
  • Benchmarking farm improvements.
