GlasPort Bio is developing a ruminant feed additive to reduce methane emissions from enteric fermentation.
Composed of natural ingredients, these have been shown to be highly effective in reducing methane release while not having any negative effects on dry matter digestibility.
This additive does not produce harmful residues nor negatively impact on the texture/taste of meat or milk.
TMR (Total Mixed Ration) – development of the feed additive for inclusion into a TMR/PMR (Partial Mixed Ration) feeding system.
Incorporation of the additive into a feed nut. Suitable for intensive livestock systems and for some forms of extensive or pasture-based systems.
For example, dairy cows brought indoors twice-a-day for milking, where consumption of a nut ration during milking shall allow the suppression of methane emissions between milkings when on pasture.
Development of a long-acting bolus which allows for the slow-release of the feed additives over extended periods of time. Particularly suitable for extensive/pasture-based livestock systems.
We are, after all, the greatest problem solvers to have ever existed on Earth. If working apart, we are a force powerful enough to destabilize our planet. Surely working together, we are powerful enough to save it.
