This webinar brought experts together to discuss indicators for environmental impact assessment of dairy farms other than greenhouse gas emissions. The speakers shared their experiences using multiple indicators for an impact assessment on dairy farms and discussed potential trade-offs between these indicators. The webinar included presentations from:
