Helwi presented a piece of work he has been a part of that used modelling to look into environmental impact of grazing dairy systems and their profitability across a number of different scenarios. The same farm parameters were used for each scenario but with cow size, genetic potential and concentrate inputs varied across the scenarios to see the impacts on profitability and environmental impact.
