Greenhouse Accounting Frameworks (GAF) for Australian Dairy, Sheep, Beef or Grain Farms
The Dairy (D-GAF), Beef (B-GAF), Sheep (S-GAF), Feedlot (F-GAF) and Grains (G-GAF) Farm Greenhouse Accounting Framework Tools are freely available below as MS Excel spreadsheets.
These tools use the latest Australian National Greenhouse Gas Inventory (NGGI) method, to predict the magnitude and sources of Greenhouse Gasses emitted from a farm.
Note! CO2 are from fuel and Electricity is NOT attributed to the farm in the NGGI, or under the CFI, but have been included by popular request from users.
To download the spreadsheets right click on the name below and save the file to your computer first.
Note! These products subject to change as the NGGI methodology is updated. Please check for updates.
