Student’s Name Professor’s Name Subject Date Windy Hill FarmIntroduction Windy Hill Farm practices organic farming. This practice is however not short of environmental and sustainability challenges that need to be addressed. With approximately 1000 dairy cattle and 2000 sheep, the farm requires some management practices to keep the sheep and livestock in good health while maintaining profitability. These practices include silage farming, slurry management, maintenance of farm tools, water sources protection and the general activities that sustain the livestock and workers working on the farm. The farm’s action plan for dealing with greenhouse gas emission adequately identifies ways of addressing the issue by outlining clear issues being addressed, mitigation options and how the identified options will mitigate greenhouse gas emission. A farm of this size and the identified activities on the farm raises wider environmental issues that go beyond greenhouse gas emission only (Hermans and Zervas, 2005). The farm’s slurry store is located at some distance from the farmyard’s livestock housing unit. The action plan suggests re-sitting of the store to reduce CO2 emissions from the machines being used (Wilkinson, J M, 26). While this is an alternative way of solving the problem, it does not exhaust other ways that could reduce the emission of CO2 significantly. A better alternative to this problem is identifying a slurry store whereby it will be easy to make the slurry flow through pipes instead of being transported by vehicles (Hermansen, John E., and George Zervas, 1). This will see the farm save on fuel costs and reduce CO2 by a greater percentage. To
