Understanding your scope 3 emissions- using simple modelling at farm level to target reduction strategies

1.00pm – 2.00pm on 23rd May 2023 [BST]

The dairy industry faces the challenge of improving its environmental sustainability. Measuring a farm’s GHG emissions intensity is a starting point but on its own is not enough. A more engaging, data-driven approach which helps farmers and their advisors to simply understand the biggest wins based on their individual farm circumstances is likely to be more successful.

  • Explore how to model farms and apply different scenarios (such as changes in fertility, feeding and forage production) to quantify the effects of these changes on GHG emissions and protein/nitrogen efficiency
  • Learn how to calculate feed protein and nitrogen efficiency
  • Gain a better understanding of the relationship between these factors and GHG emissions
