Methane reduction gains made with sheep and cattle

[Australia] Integrating native plants in pastures and feeding red macro-algae as a supplement have been identified as two of a number of ways to substantially reduce methane emissions from sheep and cattle while increasing productivity, new research has shown.

Experiments in cattle and sheep have shown feeding dried and ground red algae reduced methane emissions by up to 80 percent.
