Title in English: Mini-paper - Sustainable (robust and resilient) systems of milk production for dairy cows

Abstract / summary in English:

Sustainable agriculture concepts vary from securing global and local resources to maintaining the functional integrity of farming systems. Many different terms have been used to address the sustainability of farming systems. Discussions on sustainability may result in apparently contrasting views on intensification versus extensification, land sharing versus land sparing etc. In order to develop more sustainable systems, creativity and out-of-the-box thinking is necessary and no agricultural technology can be labelled as being good or bad. The soil, crops, farmers, landscape and product chains are different in each region and pose different challenges and possibilities for increasing sustainability. The principles of sustainable agriculture can be explored by departing from the concept of resilience.
