DSM says a two-year large-scale trial in beef cattle in Alberta, Canada has successfully demonstrated that its feed additive 3-NOP, branded as Bovaer, can be included in commercial feedlot diets to reduce methane emissions by up to 80%, without negative...
Preliminary data from a trial evaluating a Locus Fermentation Solutions’ microbe in cattle at UC Davis showed significant reduction in methane emissions in cows, without sacrificing animal health or performance.
US company, Blue Ocean Barns, says it has developed a feed supplement from the red seaweed, Asparagopsis taxiformis, which, when minimally processed and fed in small amounts to cattle, significantly reduces their methane emissions.
DSM says it is building on its work to date on feed enzymes, on algae derived omega-3 and on methane emissions reduction to lead what it terms a robust and achievable transformation worldwide in sustainable animal protein production.
A group of researchers, including from the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations and the University of Wageningen in the Netherlands, said the livestock chain, including the dairy industry, emits 65 trillion grams of nitrogen into the...
A US study suggests that DSM’s feed additive, 3-NOP, is a promising candidate for reducing enteric methane emissions, while maintaining lactational performance in dairy cows and potentially increasing milk fat yield.
