Join our online event next week as we discuss how the focus on methane emissions reduction in the US has intensified recently, highlighted by the FDA's approval of Bovaer, pending legislation, and an increasing number of federal grants.

Register now for the FeedNavigator webinar Cracking the Methane Code​ on Tuesday, July 2, where four experts will discuss advancements in methane emissions reduction and how 2030 targets can be met; they will explore developments in multiple markets including the UK, where dsm-firmenich's 3NOP additive was given the green light in January this year.

Commentators emphasize that there is no single solution to methane mitigation in cattle. A comprehensive approach, considering various strategies across different regions, is essential to curb on-farm emissions.

Breeding programs will be a focus of our discussion, as will the recently announced Dairy Methane Action Alliance, a global initiative to accelerate action and transparency on methane emissions across the dairy sector.

But it has long been recoginsed that monetary incentives are needed to back innovation in this area, so we will also analyse the effectivenesss of financial instruments such as goverment subsidies, carbon markets and sustainability premiums in that respect. 

And tools to measure emissions reduction are key. I will ask the panellists whether GWP* is more effective than GWP100 as a metric. 

Featured speakers

Our lineup of experts includes:

John Tauzel: Senior Director for Global Agriculture Methane at the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF). He will provide an overview of agricultural methane solutions and discuss industry pledges.

Dr Annie Williams: Business Development Manager at the UK Agri-Tech Centre. She will cover a UK-wide project using daffodil extract to reduce methane in cows and a breeding initiative focused on methane emissions reduction in sheep.

Jan Dijkstra: Associate Professor of Animal Nutrition at Wageningen University, Netherlands. He will discuss forage and grass-based dietary approaches, methane blockers, and best practices in developing countries.

Dr Pablo Modernel: Program manager, Farm Nature, at FrieslandCampina. He will share how the dairy cooperative is driving emission reductions through feed additive trials and farmer incentives.

Limiting impact of dairy and beef production 

The race is on with 100 countries having committed to cut methane emissions by 30% by 2030 back at COP26, and high on their list then was addressing the impact of the global cattle population, estimated at 1.5 billion. 

Register for our event​ now so you don’t miss this opportunity to hear insights from a diverse group of methane mitigation experts on how nations can hit that target.
