Jersey Dairy has announced a new partnership with Trinity AgTech, to provide a credible and bespoke carbon emission and biodiversity evaluation programme for Jersey dairy farms.
The company was launched to help farms measure and leverage carbon and natural capital so as to create more resilient, sustainable businesses. In doing so, local farms can help solve some of the world’s ecological and environmental problems.
Anna Woodley, director of business development at Trinity AgTech, said: ‘We’re delighted that Jersey Dairy is one of the first to recognise this value. We look forward to helping them in their efforts to create even more sustainable, low-carbon dairy that makes a positive contribution to the environment.’
Anna and her team recently visited Jersey Dairy to present to dairy farmers the benefits of working together on this new partnership that, she said, embraced on-farm credibility, precision and simplicity as well as bringing clarity to the misinformation that so often surrounds the dairy industry.
Dairy farmer Tom Perchard said: ‘Trinity AgTech are at the forefront of the drive to cut C0₂ emissions within the food production supply chain. Rather than using generic and outdated emissions data, Trinity AgTech have developed their own in-house tech and software to more accurately measure CO2 emissions down to individual farm businesses.
‘Essential to this process, and often overlooked in the past, is being able to quantify the positive contribution that grassland carbon sequestration and increased levels of farm biodiversity make towards net carbon output.
‘This work will dovetail perfectly into what we at Jersey Dairy are already doing through LEAF accreditation and our own Dairy Environmental Enhancement Plan (DEEP) and will enable us to make more informed and better management decisions across our businesses as we move towards net zero.’
He continued: ‘This new relationship between Jersey Dairy and Trinity AgTech really does demonstrate the proactive and ground-breaking approach that our farmers are taking towards reducing CO₂ emissions and we’re delighted to be working together to deliver a more environmentally sustainable future for the Island’s dairy industry.’
