The atmospheric emissions of CH 4 , N 2 O, CO 2 and NH 3 from four dairy farms with different dairy cows housing solutions were monitored by means of the "chamber method" procedure. Results show that the environmental impact of livestock units is higher in those farms where manure removal is provided with scraper on concrete floor. The addition of rubber mat in the alleys can improve the cleaning efficiency of scrapers and reduce NH 3 and CH 4 emissions. Lower emissions were observed in dairy houses equipped with slatted floor and/or flushing system for slurry removal.
