The dairy resilient landscapes project will explore the trade-offs between farmers’ livelihoods, the natural environment and the stable supply of reasonably priced dairy products, to find better ways of working in the face of unpredictable future societal, environmental and climate change. 

We will do this by combining the latest social, economic, natural, and veterinary science with the expertise of farmers and the dairy industry, to devise and test innovations that will increase the resilience and sustainability of dairy farming in our rapidly changing world. 

This £1.5M four-year project is funded by the Global Food Security’s ‘Resilience of the UK Food System Programme’ with support from BBSRC, ESRC, NERC and Scottish Government.
