Penn State Introduces Virtual Carbon Calculator Tool for Dairies

Penn State University and partners have developed an interactive “carbon calculator” tool to help dairy farmers see the impact of management decisions. The new tool is an addition to Penn State’s award-winning “Virtual Farm” website. “The carbon calculator is a handy tool that allows the site user to consider management options and see how they impact overall farm carbon release related to climate-changing methane and other farm greenhouse gases,” explains professor Eileen Fabian.
