  4. • No/low-till farming and cover crops • Renewable fertilizers • Precision agriculture • Reduced liquid manure storage and proper maintenance • Technologies to capture nutrients and create new manure-based products • Nutrient Management Planning (NMP) • Anaerobic digesters turn manure into biogas • LED lighting, variable speed vacuum pumps, high-efficiency refrigeration, and fans • Conversion of biogas into electricity and/or renewable natural gas • Renewable energy sources from wind/solar Feed production and practice changes: On-farm energy efficiency and renewable energy usage • Feed additives • Optimized feed rations • Genetics • Technology for farm animal management Cow care & efficiency: Visuals do not represent all possible practices, technologies or benefits. Each farm can voluntarily contribute to net zero efforts based on their individual operation. Manure handling and nutrient management: NZI: Four Key Areas of Focus 5
