Minutes CCCfarming TEAMS meeting on 12th of April 2023
Present:Valentina Becciolini; Matteo Barbari; Diāna Ruska; Kaspars Naglis-Liepa; Paul Hargreaves; Bob Rees, Christoph Flechard, Adam Cieślak; Lena Fehmer; Violeta Juškienė, Katja Klumpp; Gitana Kadziene; Paul Galama, Abele Kuipers
- Minutes of TEAMS meeting of 3rd of March agreed upon. It is noted that here are many questions for IDELE and their representative Xavier Verge is not present to-day.
- Consortium meeting in Florence, Italy on 22-24th of May - Valentina Becciolini asks participants to book their hotels soon. A program for the internal consortia meetings should be prepared
- Climate care dairy session in Lyon, France - Concept program with overview of speakers is presented. It will be an 11/2-day seminar. Chairmen: Galama, Rees (1st session), Edouard, Becciolini (2nd), Cieslak, Kuipers (3rd).
- Emission calculations for each pilot farm and overall analysis; Paul Robin and Xavier Verge are unfortunately not present; Xavier Verge has let know by mail that they work on it. Requested actions in mail of Xavier Verge of 21st of March raise questions. We try to understand the data of the Excel file. We specifically look at the Lithuanian 4 farms. Violeta Juškienė gives some information about these farms. Next meeting, these topics will be put again on the agenda.
- Progress with collecting information for Farm Plans
- Overview - Diana Ruska
- Simulated calculations with chosen strategies with AgreCalc - Paul Hargreaves reports: It looks that France has no data inputted in AgreCalc; there are still questions about completeness of data from the Netherlands, Italy and Germany.
- Simulated calculations with chosen strategies with ANCA - Paul Galama explains; information about the simulated calculations by Marion de Vries are presented in the Appendix. It was told that from France are no input data in ANCA available (Germany did use AgreCalc for all farms).
- Economic calculations – Kaspars Naglis-Liepa
Kaspars Naglis requests Paul Galama to check part of his assumptions for making the economic calculations.
- Collecting videos; at least one video per partner country related to this project is requested; Violeta and Diana will start this action.
- Overview dissemination events; a sheet is prepared gathering info about events done towards farmers and stakeholders by the partners in context of disseminating this project
- Website info; more info will be placed on the public website instead of on the internal site.

NETHERLANDSExample: farm NL5
|Code of measures||Information from farmer and / or expert||Expected impact||Simulated ANCA|
|N.2||From 160 to 150 crude protein for 220 cows||NH3, GHG||YES|
|N.3||Bovaer methane blocker for 220 cows||GHG||YES|
|N 11||Combination of energy saving measurements:
- Crude protein 157 -> 150 g / kg DM (total ration)
- Via compound concentrate feed (CP protein mixture reduced from 381 to 280)
- Assumption equal milk yield
- Increase in amount of mineral fertilizer applied (+3600 kg KAS) to compensate for the reduced amount of N applied via manure.
- Bovaer methane inhibitor
- 70.5 mg 3-NOP/kg DM -> assumed enteric methane reduction 31%
- Corrected for grazing hours (28%)
|GHG (g CO2-eq/kg FPCM)||NH3 (kg/ha)||Soil N surplus (kg/ha)|
|Reduce crude protein||1248||1246||50||45||165||159|
|Feed methane inhibitor||1248||1094||50||50||165||165|
- Reducing CP intake reduced NH3 emission by 10% and N soil surplus by 4%.
- Feeding Bovaer reduced enteric methane emission by 28% (corrected for grazing), and total cradle-to-farm gate GHG emissions per kg FPCM by 12%.
