Across eight states, dairy farms are participating in the Dairy Soil and Water Regeneration Project to determine dairy farms' greenhouse gas footprint. Dairy Stream host Mike Austin talked with Mara Cloutier, a Ph.D in soil science and biogeochemistry with the Soil Health Institute, and Lee Kinnard, dairy farmer of Kinnard Farms in Casco, Wis. They discussed carbon associated with cover crops, reduced tillage, different manure-based products and how soil health practices are practical on all-sized dairies. Thank you to The Nature Conservancy in Wisconsin for sponsoring this episode.
