Webinar: The carbon footprint of milk and the Life Carbon Dairy Project
Dairy production has opposing effects on climate change. It generates greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions but can regulate climate through carbon storage in soils. This means that management techniques can impact on the sustainability of agriculture. Studies reveal that knowledge gaps exist amongst French Dairy farmers about the use of different agricultural practices on GHG emissions and in the availability of new innovative practices that possess low carbon footprints.
During this webinar Catherine Brocas discusses the key results from the 4000 dairy farms followed in the Life Carbon Dairy project. She describes the main practices contributing to reducing the carbon footprint of milk and also how it improves recourse and economic efficiency of dairy farming.
