GreenDairy develops innovative crop-livestock systems which are both ecologically and economically sustainable, enable a special level of animal welfare and are widely accepted in society. In particular, GreenDairy investigates the impact of two intensity levels of organic dairy production systems linked to the value chains milk, meat and plant-based human food. Cattle farming in a mixed farming system (livestock and crop production) is considered as one of the possible solutions for closing the disconnected material and nutrient cycles in agriculture.

Yet there is a lack of knowledge about the effects of different levels of intensity of such production systems on ecology, economy and animal welfare. GreenDairy will investigate these effects based on a unique and state of the art dairy unit.

We are currently preparing the project, organising the infrastructure and taking all relevant measures to ensure a successful kick-off in January 2022. In the course of this work, various project positions have been advertised.
