Title: Dairy Ecosystem Management
Author: Johnson, Rhett H.
Abstract: The state of Georgia has 602 dairies. Many of these dairies have pasturelands that are not being managed to maximize their potential in aiding water quality achievement. The objective of this presentation is to establish why dairies with pastureland should be managed using ecological principles to solve water quality problems. Many people think of a dairy as a place where farmers milk cows and animal waste is produced. Seldom are dairies thought of or managed as a unique ecosystem.
