Climate Care Cattle Farming Systems

Development of climate smart care cattle farming systems reducing GHG and ammonia emissions.

Work packages

The work plan is built up of six work-packages. Integrated and innovative practices and techniques will be applied and evaluated at the farm level. The housing and manure handling practices and techniques from animal to field are central to the emission reduction approach of this project. Suitable feeding, breeding, grassland and fertilization practices are added to the integrated farm systems approach, while realizing that breeding options to become effective requires time.

Field monitoring and assessment

WP1 (Field monitoring and assessment) – will use a network of field study farms (62) to deliver reduced GHG emissions from these agri-businesses and by doing so, serve as ambassadors for this CCCfarming project. A tailor made approach will be adopted to...


In depth monitoring of emissions

WP2 (In depth monitoring of emissions) – detailed research in combination with input from literature will be used to assess practices and techniques expected to contribute to a sustainable farm management. Detailed measurements will take place in...


Mitigation practices and techniques

WP3 (Mitigation practices and techniques) – examines the socio-economic and political aspects of the possible interventions identified in WP1 and 2.

The practices and techniques studied in WPs 1 and 2 will be analysed for socio-economic effects . The...


Testing innovative farming systems

WP4 (Testing innovative farming systems) – is devoted to the development of farm systems, which are targeted at meeting the socio-economic and environmental goals. A set of good practices and techniques will be combined in farm systems, to be checked and...


Dissemination and Communication

WP5 (Dissemination and Communication) – deal with the dissemination of this project.

The objective – to disseminate the results to the target groups and outside world Description: Part of the dissemination will be organised around the experimental and...


Project management

WP6 (Project management) – deal with management tasks of this project.

All partners will be involved in project communication. Communication will be at two levels: internal project level and external. Participating partners will meet at least once a year. Associated...
