Factsheet for dairy farmers on energy use, energy saving, carbon dioxide emissions reduction and carbon storage.

Year of Publication2010

Although carbon dioxide emissions only represent a minor proportion of a typical dairy farms greenhouse gas emissions, there are worthwhile savings that can be made which will reduce carbon dioxide emissions and at the same time improve farm profitability. Farm related emissions of carbon dioxide come from animals and plants and from burning fuels, natural gas and indirectly from electricity used on the farm. A further source is from the oxidation of soil.
