Carbon footprinting helps you to quantify the level of greenhouse gas emissions from the farm business.
Acting on this information not only helps minimise emissions, but it can also provide significant efficiency and economic benefits at the farm level. Each group member will undertake a carbon audit using AgRE Calc © software, the results from which will be compared amongst the group and any potential efficiency improvements identified.
Improving on-farm efficiencies through better use of inputs strongly correlates with reduced production costs per litre of milk leading to improved profitability for the farm business.
If you would like to be part of the group, please phone Alison Clark on 01776 702649 to receive questionnaire documents that allow comparisons between members. A light supper will be provided so booking is essential for catering purposes; please use the booking form below.
