The DairyMix project aims to support the transformation of farming structures towards higher levels of diversity by growing more crops in succession or in parallel. This improves the circular flow of carbon and nutrients in dairy farming systems and allows for a significantly lower environmental impact. In a multi-criteria assessment, the three pillars of sustainability are analysed with the aim of reducing negative environmental impacts, increasing profitability and improving animal welfare. For this purpose, data are collected on model farms and practical measures for improving sustainability are derived from them. Information is processed and made available in a clear and easily accessible form via the online knowledge platform MilKey-DairyMix to target groups such as farmers and consumers as well as users from the advisory and political sectors.
