This project is led by Professor Mark Reed (Newcastle University) with Universities of Leeds and Liverpool, in collaboration with Nestle, Business in the Community, the Rivers Trusts, Innovation for Agriculture, 3Keel and other players in the dairy industry and Government. The research is exploring new ways of to make dairy systems better for the natural environment and farmers’ livelihoods, while maintaining the long-term supply of dairy products at reasonable prices in the face of unpredictable challenges like climate change.
The team is doing this by combining the latest natural, social and veterinary science with industry expertise and experiential farmer knowledge, to devise and test innovations that could increase the resilience and sustainability of dairy farming in a rapidly changing world. This £1.5M four-year project is funded by the Research Council’s Global Food Security programme.
