Innovation Center for US Dairy Western Project
Corn silage and alfalfa average the highest percentage of dairy feed rations in the U.S. With the addition of these crops in the Fieldprint Platform, this project allows dairy cooperatives and their farmers to trial the tool, assess value, provide feedback, and identify continuous improvement opportunities. The Innovation Center for U.S. Dairy will use aggregate findings from implementing dairy cooperatives to inform national strategies for dairy feed sustainability. This project further connects to the NRCS Resource Stewardship Evaluation Tool (RSET), and will identify opportunities for Fieldprint data to provide RSET inputs that can advance farmer access to NRCS conservation support.
