Innovations and Strenghs: The objective is to quantify the extent to which implementation of best practices will lower the carbon footprint of pasture-based milk production while maintaining current levels of milk output per ha and profitability. The carbon footprint will be measured using IPCC methodology, life cycle assessment and by direct measurement of GHG emissions such as nitrous oxide and carbon dioxide emissions, including carbon sequestration.
