"Reply from Arla farmers on the Swedish kosläppen"
"This is an opinion piece. It is the writer who stands for the views that are put forward in the text, not Against."
"REPLICA. This year welcomes 50 of Arla's owners to their kosläpp. A lovely family day where dairy farmers will invite the public to their farms. We will offer milk and a bun, and celebrating the fact that the cows are placed on a long summer pasture. Last year, the most Arlagårdarna the cows out on pasture much longer than what the law says. A bait that is on the chips that often do not go to use to the cereal crops. A bait that is the premise to keep naturbetesängarna open and alive. "
"Kosläppen is made with pride in animal welfare on our farms. The Swedish cows may, for example, at least the antibiotics in the EU, according to the Agriculture department. But we are also proud of what is being done to lower the klimatavtrycket. Already today, Swedish milk is almost 50% smaller carbon footprint than the average in the world."
"Negative impact on the climate is usually called the footprint. Handprints is all the positive we do for the environment. Dairy farms that have grazing animals, grass and klöverodlingar, different habitat types and grazing lands are important for what is called ecosystem services. It is the services and goods that we receive from nature, such as insects pollinate plants and pastures and gräsodling binds the key to the carbon in the ground. One of the many handprints on the farm, therefore, is to ensure that ecosystem services are functioning as well as possible. "
"the Soil on the farm absorbs carbon dioxide and acts as the so-called carbon sinks. Carbon sinks can simply be described as reservoirs in nature, which binds carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and thus reduce greenhouse gases. Carbon sinks is a key in the fight against climate change, but in order to maximize the soil's positive effect on the climate, we need develop more methods in order to better measure and understand how this works. "
"to get a true picture of the klimatavtrycket it is time to take into account the klimatpositiva the pieces, for example, kolinbidningen from the farms, the forests, the production of biogas (cow manure) that can drive the city buses and the other hand, that helps to reduce the carbon footprint. It is simply time to both look at the footprint and handavtrycken on the farms. In the year 2045, we should have a net zero carbon footprint. "
"today, The imported food to the us, which has a higher carbon footprint than that produced by the Swedish farmers. Climate change is our greatest challenge and we believe that Sweden needs to produce more climate-smart food. In order to increase the production of food in Sweden do farmers need in Sweden to feel confidence and security. The task of politicians is to ensure that the competitiveness of the Swedish farmers are getting better. Swedish farmers, who are at the forefront in the world, should not have to be troubled and disturbed by the activists. "
"When Arla's owners open the farm for kosläpp, we do it with warmth and pride. We hope that everyone will make it to jointly pay homage to the Swedish food production."
