The Specific Aim of this proposal is to promote more sustainable Wisconsin dairy farm production systems applying systematic whole-farm integrated evaluations. Proposed work will adjust, adapt, and incorporate the Integrated Farm System Model (IFSM), the most cited and the state-of-the-art model, to Wisconsin dairy farm conditions. Research results will generate integrated methodological frameworks to better assess dairy farm long-term sustainability. Extension outcomes will include messages of best management practices associated with online user-friendly decision support tools and measurable impacts of improved Wisconsin dairy farm sustainability.
