Life Cycle Greenhouse Gas Emissions of Dairy and Bioenergy Systems


Why Study Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Dairy Systems?

Animal agriculture presents multiple challenges for sustainability and the dairy sector alone contributes 30% of agricultural greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Bioenergy systems have been implemented to reduce GHG emissions and contribute to energy independence goals, but the production of bioenergy must be done with caution to avoid the generation of additional emissions during feedstock production and harvesting.…

Why Study Composting Separated Manure Solids?

This research is evaluating management options for conventional hog producing facilities in regions of Manitoba that will have insufficient land base for sustainably applying raw slurry manure when manure application regulations switch from nitrogen based to phosphorus based rates.…
