The economic, social, and environmental challenges that the milk production sector is facing at a European scale require the development of holistic concepts to facilitate and assist stakeholders when taking informed decisions towards more sustainable dairy production systems (DPS). In this context, whole-farm models are presented as relevant tools for the integrated assessment of the three pillars of sustainability: economic, social, and environmental. In this recent paper from the Leibniz Institute of Agricultural Engineering and Bioeconomy (ATB) (Germany) a novel framework for the evaluation of whole-farm models is presented. This evaluation framework aims to guide potential users when choosing amongst the wide variety of existing whole-farm models. In addition, pathways for further improvements of the framework are identified.
