Viresco, DSM and a consortium of Alberta agricultural partners have worked together to demonstrate a feed ingredient for cattle that significantly reduces cattle-based methane emissions.

The ingredient can be introduced to regular feeding regimes to reduce the methane produced by each animal, enabling substantial reductions in emissions from Alberta’s beef and dairy industries.
