NC2042 Visits Blanca from the Pyrenees
The NC2042: Management Systems to Improve the Economic and Environmental Sustainability of Dairy Enterprises (Rev. NC-1119), is a group of professors from different US universities that focuses on the area of economics and environment as important aspects to take care of in the Dairy sector.
For their annual meeting, they chosed Spain, this time they came to Blanca, between other dairy spaces around the area of Cataluña.
‘’Dairy farming is a highly integrated decision intensive system. It must rely on a systems approach to define options to maintain a profitable business, accountable to consumers for environmental impacts, product quality and animal well-being. Profitable decisions cannot be made without useful support systems.’’
