Signpost Farmers use their carbon footprint to make a plan

The carbon footprint of a farm refers to the greenhouse gases (GHG) emitted for every kg of milk or meat produced. Certified dairy and beef farmers receive a Farmer Feedback Report from Bord Bia’ This includes the farm’s carbon footprint, calculated using a model developed by Teagasc.
