Accessing Expertise

Businesses will be able to access expertise and facilities through Dairy Nexus, a new state-of-the-art co-innovation hub based at SRUC’s Barony Campus in Dumfries. Research activity will focus on innovation in on-farm and downstream milk processing technologies. The aim is to maximise the value of milk and reduce energy consumption and waste in processing and storage.

Technology & Research

Digital TwinniNG Technology

Digital twinning technology at Barony’s research farm will be extended across a network of other farms in the region. This technology will focus on decarbonising grass-based dairy production and reducing its environmental impacts.

New facilities will also enable us to bio-refine grass, other forage crops, manure and milk to develop novel value-added products and establish new value chains.

Transformational Research

Through transformational research, the Digital Dairy Chain will re-position grass-based dairy farming towards a sustainable circular bioeconomy. This bold re-imagining opens new opportunities to reduce waste, increase profitability, and create new income streams within the sector.
