Dairy FarmA new announcement came out from the Innovation
Center for U.S. Dairy. The announcement has shown a new way to involve
technology in the business of farming. The innovation, which is designed to
help farmers and producers in the dairy industry, will help to enhance the
sustainability of the industry.
The resource, a
customized database, helps producers to track and better understand the carbon
footprint of their business. The research that started the database was part of
a 2008 initiative known as the U.S. Dairy Sustainability Commitment. The
project was undertaken with the help of the National Agricultural Library of
the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
In a release about the database Dr.
Simon Liu, director of the National Agricultural Library at the USDA, said, "We
are very glad to have the dairy industry’s leadership. The goal is to continue
to expand the data in the National Agricultural Library so that we can advance
the science and meet the growing demand for quantitative data that helps to
identify opportunities for innovation and improvement."
