A set of GHG factsheets have been produced to break down climate change and greenhouse gases and identify the key management and practical measures that farmers can take to reduce the environmental impact of dairy farming.

The factsheets build on research and development previously carried out by DairyCo, and complement a series of case studies demonstrating what some dairy farmers have already achieved to reduce their GHG and ammonia emissions on-farm.

The factsheets can be requsted by calling the DairyCo publications line on: 024 7647 8905 or emailing
