Agriculture accounts for approximately 30% of Irish greenhouse gas production with most of the remainder being contributed by the transport and domestic sectors. Ireland is committed to reduce green house gas emissions by 20% by 2020. Reductions in agricultural emissions per unit of output can be achieved by improving farm efficiency. The Beef Carbon Navigator focuses on the 6 main
efficiency measures that reduce GHG emissions and increase profit.
1. Longer grazing season
2. Lower age at first calving
3. Increased Calving Rate
4. Improved Growth Rate
5. Improved nitrogen use efficiency
6. Improved slurry management
