Dairy operations continue to be plagued by a high incidence of metabolic disorders and infectious diseases around calving. Turbulent transitions increase expenses, decrease milk production, impair reproductive performance, and result in premature death. Practical management strategies to minimize health problems while still promoting high milk production have remained elusive.
Farms with livestock have the advantage of being able to supply manure, which has many of the nutrients required for crop production, to their fields. To protect water quality and use these nutrients to support crop growth, manure has to be applied with consideration for timing, method, and rate.
By Judith L Capper, and Roger A Cady. Although milk yield per cow has increased over the past decade, whole-system environmental impact analyses have not been conducted over this time. The objective of this study was to compare the environmental impact of U.S. dairy cattle production in 2007–2017.
Nitrogen interception technology recycles ground water in areas where, because of soil type and other conditions and where manure effluent is being land-applied, there is a danger of elevated groundwater nitrate levels. This technology uses shallow wells in fields that receive wastewater to intercept nitrogen and reuse it for irrigation.
An excellent video produced by Washington State University that highlights two of the innovative ways that the dairy industry is working to address the environmental issues it is facing using new technologies that create usable products and reduce their costs.
This study, led by Dr. Ermias Kebreab, Dr. Frank Mitloehner, and Dr. Daniel A. Sumner from the University of California, Davis, and funded by the California Dairy Research Foundation, finds that California's voluntary climate-smart solutions in the dairy industry could achieve a 40% reduction in methane emissions by 2030.
Researchers provide a comprehensive review of current enteric methane mitigation options to improve the carbon footprint of ruminant food products. The paper highlights the opportunities and barriers to the implementation of the current available options as well as the economic, regulatory, and societal aspects that are key to implementation.
Dairy Research Institute (DRI), through financial support from the EPA Great Lakes Restoration Initiative in the amount of $437,000 (GL 00E02795-0), engaged Newtrient LLC and Michael Best Strategies (MBS) to support the development of a Clearinghouse design in the Great Lakes region.
Part one of a four-part webinar series sponsored by EPA AgSTAR, to help farms from their first steps in the project all the way through breaking ground. Topics include: weighing the risks and rewards. Having conversations with business partners/family. Knowing the right questions to ask, and resources to reach out…
