Photo / Lynda Feringa, FileBy Jordan Bond of RNZGreenhouse gas emissions from dairy farming have increased to an all-time high, according to Stats NZ. The Stats NZ figures count all emissions produced on dairy farms, regardless of what the emissions stem from. Dairy NZ, another industry group, also does not use the Stats NZ figures because it includes all emissions on dairy farms, including those from beef cattle and sheep which also live on what are predominantly dairy farms. (By way of example: if a farm has 90 per cent dairy cows and 10 percent beef cows, Stats NZ would count all emissions from that farm as dairy farming emissions, while MfE would count only the dairy cows' emissions.) Dairy NZ points out many dairy farms also run stock other than the dairy herds.
