Over the past five decades, the dairy industry has lowered methane gas emissions by 45%. Still, additional efforts are needed to limit global warming. The dairy industry imposes targets on dairy farmers to cut methane emissions by a further 20-25% by 2030.
These targets are feasible, according to Dr. Ermias Kebreab, Associate Dean and Professor of Animal Science at the University of California, Davis. He is one of the worlds’ leading experts in the science of reducing the carbon footprint of dairy cattle..
During a webinar entitled “Effective strategies to reduce the carbon footprint of dairy cattle” (May 26, 2023), he discussed ways to reduce carbon footprint that can be employed by the livestock industry to reach net zero livestock production by 2050. He also discussed what potential impact the different stakeholders within the industry can have on methane from cows and the dairy carbon footprint.
We divided the webinar recording in three chapters:
Chapter 1 - Current status and targets for methane mitigation in the livestock industry.
Chapter 2 - What strategies can be adopted to reach targets for methane emissions?
Chapter 3 - What are the options for direct reduction of methane emissions?
