Welcome to the Dairy Environmental Systems Website

The purpose of this website is to disseminate cutting edge information on manure treatment and manage technologies.

The Cornell Dairy Environmental Systems Program is a multi-disciplinary effort among members of the Cornell PRO-DAIRY and SPEAR programs, and collaborative faculty and staff in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences  to address critical aspects of dairy farming and its impact on the environment.  A major goal of the Dairy Environmental Management Program is to develop and deliver sound information and tools to dairy farmers and their advisors engineered and packaged in ways that allow farmers to make sound business decisions in production areas that influence air quality, the climate, and water quality. Renewable energy (dairy manure-based anaerobic digestion) is also a major focus area of the program.
