Objective : Reducing greenhouse gas emissions by optimizing dairy farms’ performance.

The Low carbon dairy Farm initiative is supported and developed by the French Dairy Interbranch Organization (Cniel), with the aim of reducing French dairy farms’ greenhouse gas emissions.
Dairy farmers engaged in the Low Carbon Dairy farm initiative receive individual advice and are being proposed solutions, specifically adapted to their farm and ambitions. On the field, this support is made possible thanks to advisors from Chambers of Agriculture, French Milk Recording Umbrella companies and dairy companies, trained in the CAP'2ER® diagnostic tool.
