This study aims to estimate the carbon footprint resulting from the functional unit produced in a dairy cattle (100 head), a sheep (80 head), and a layer hen (12000 birds) enterprises operating in the Bursa region. In this study, 1 liter of milk in the dairy cattle farm, 1 kg of meat in the sheep farm and 1 kg of eggs in the hens' farm are considered as functional units. Within the scope of the study, Tier 1 and Tier 2 approaches were used to estimate methane gas emission both from enteric fermentation and manure management.
