The amount of roughage has a major influence on cows’ methane production

A feeding trial at AU Foulum has shown that cows’ enteric methane emission decreases markedly when the amount of roughage in the feed ration is limited significantly. However, this feeding strategy is not applicable in practice, as it challenges the cows’ health as well as the farmer’s economy.

A new project is to lead the way to describing the climate-friendly dairy cow

Aarhus University leads a new research project which is to pave the way for a more climate-efficient dairy production. The aim of the project is to reduce the cow’s methane emission via feeding and to investigate the biological reasons for why cows differ in methane production. Furthermore, researchers will examine how we can implement the new…
