What IS The problem?
Cows and other ruminant animals are a significant source of methane emissions, a potent greenhouse gas that contributes significantly to climate change. The majority of emissions originate from their digestive system, particularly during the process of enteric fermentation. Methane is considered a more potent greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide, with a global warming potential that is estimated to be 28 times greater than carbon dioxide over a 100-year period.
Farmers can use MethaGone to reduce methane emissions, a potent greenhouse gas that contributes to climate change. This can help meet sustainability goals, alleviate societal and market pressure to be more sustainable, and attract business from corporations emphasizing sustainability.
In addition to reducing methane emissions, MethaGone can increase the production of short-chain fatty acids in the rumen, leading to higher weight gain in livestock. This can benefit farmers by improving animal productivity and profitability, making feed additives a promising solution to address both environmental and economic challenges in agriculture.
By reducing methane emissions, increasing animal productivity, and meeting sustainability goals, farmers can improve their profitability and qualify for carbon credits. This provides a financial incentive for farmers to adopt sustainable practices and helps simultaneously address the challenges of climate change and food security.
A novel Approach: Probıotıcs
Our probiotic contains a special ingredient called bromoform, which helps to inhibit the production of methane in the cow’s rumen. This is achieved by blocking a key enzyme that is necessary for the final stages of methanogenesis, which is the process by which methane is produced.
