Description

A truly interdisciplinary and scientifically excellent framework drawing on life cycle assessment (LCA) and farm management modelling expertise, animal husbandry expertise, economic modelling expertise, and detailed data on existing farm structure and trends.
Will apply consequential LCA (CLCA), economic and environmental modelling to capture wider effects of beef production and indirect landuse change at multiple scales.
Methodically innovative framework allowing feedback between the LCA, farm management and economic components.
Direct relevance to farm management and UK dairy policy makers.
