What happens to hydrogen and carbon when the production of methane from cattle is reduced?

Methane consists of carbon and hydrogen, and the production of methane in the rumen of cattle can be reduced significantly by for example adding fat or by adding a new feed additive, Bovaer®, to the ration. Researchers at AU Foulum are now investigating where that carbon and hydrogen end up, and whether the lower production of methane means that…

The cow favours natural over synthetic vitamin E for the cow milk

When the cow is fed grass with a naturally high vitamin E content, the milk’s content of vitamin E is higher than when the cow is primarily fed feed containing synthetic vitamin E. The explanation is that the cow favours natural vitamin E over synthetic vitamin E. This is what studies conducted by researchers at AU Foulum show. The results have…
