In 2019, the Food and Agriculture Organization and Global Dairy Platform published a report entitled, ‘Climate Change and the Global Dairy Cattle Sector’. This global review identified improved cattle health as one key action to reduce Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions from livestock production.
New research shows how improved cattle health can reduce Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions from livestock production. This research explores:
- The effect of proactive animal health management, using Animal Health Improvement Measures (AHIM) on GHG emissions
- The economic impact these AHIM improvements have on farmers
- How AHIM could be included in Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) and the necessary Measurement, Reporting and Verification to achieve this ambition
