Let's Talk Dairy - Knowing your Carbon Footprint
On this episode of Let's Talk Dairy which took place on Thursday, 2 December, Stuart Childs, Teagasc Dairy Specialist was joined by Siobhán Kavanagh, Signpost Programme Communications and Engagement Specialist to discuss the Bord Bia report and knowing your carbon footprint.
As part of the Bord Bia audit process, farmers must complete a Sustainability Survey, the data of which enables Bord Bia to assess the environmental performance of Quality Assured farms using a carbon footprint for the farm. The farmer then receives a Farmer Feedback Report from Bord Bia, which includes their farm’s carbon footprint. The report contains useful graphs displaying summaries of your farm’s nutrient management (fertiliser and slurry application), grassland management, and rates of concentrates fed.
