Arla inaugurates innovation farm

Finngarne farm north of Norrtälje becomes Innovation farm for Arla. Here, methods to increase the positive environmental impact of dairy farming will be tested. The inauguration takes place today, the 8th of October.

At Finngarne farm Arla will fund research projects on methods that increase the positive environmental impact of milk production, reduce the climate impact and modernized technology for better animal care.
