Feeding and phenotype of the climate-efficient dairy cow

Project: Research

See relations at Aarhus University


We will validate existing additives and, in collaboration with the industry, start the development of new safe additives, which in the long term can ensure a significant reduction in methane without compromising the animal's health and milk quality.

In the project we will establish the phenotype for the effective dairy cow so that this can be included in the future breeding goals. The use of new mitigation-tools depends entirely on the possibility of implementation on the individual farm. We will develop tools to document the real production of enteric methane on a cattle farm.
