John Barry Signpost beef farmer on reducing emissions


This month we meet farmers that are engaging with their carbon footprint figure. Michael Daly, Teagasc Drystock Advisor, joins suckler farmer John Barry in Co. Tipperary, to analyse the results of his audit report from Bord Bia and suitable actions he can take to reduce emissions.

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.
