Maria Markiewicz-Keszycka, Principal Investigator in the School of Agriculture and Food Science at University College Dublin, Ireland, is leading the CattleDiVersa: Diversification of Dairy and Beef Production for Climate Smart Agriculture project.
The CattleDiVersa project aims to provide robust solutions for the design and promotion of diversification on beef and dairy farms in a bid to lower environmental impact.
Maria and her team will be carrying out case studies in Ireland, UK and Britany and Normandy in France and would like to focus on both dairy and beef farms that have already implemented diversification, and on farms that operate alternative production systems/activities (not necessarily including beef and dairy). The case studies will allow them to establish the key success factors and the challenges experienced. They will use the information to highlight environmental and socio-economic impact caused by diversification activities.
