Optimizing feeding is necessary to maintain milk production in organic herds

Source: Science Daily

Currently, agriculture accounts for approximately 9% of total US greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. By varying diet formulation and the associated crop production to supply the diet, farmers can affect the quantity of GHG emissions of various feeding systems. Therefore, researchers have created a study to compare the effects of feeding strategies and the associated crop hectares on GHG emissions of Wisconsin certified organic dairy farms.
