Prof. Holly publication: Environmental assessment of United States dairy farms
A publication on the environmental assessment of United States dairy farms coauthored by Assistant Prof. Holly (NAS) was published in the Journal of Cleaner Production this week. The article was an effort of the USDA’s Dairy Agro-ecosystems Working Group and was facilitated by characterization of United States dairy farming by Prof. Holly. The assessment includes environmental footprints from the dairy industry and their contribution to national inventories. The authors highlight significant nitrogen emissions from dairy farming and recommend future economical strategies for reduction.
