TACKLING GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS

Mootral Ruminant

Methane is naturally released by ruminants during their digestion process called enteric fermentation. While methane is the second most abundant greenhouse gas released into the atmosphere due to human activity, it is also 84 times more powerful than CO2 over the first 20 years of its molecular life. And that’s why we need to help cows to help us saving our climate, one cow at a time! Mootral Ruminant is a 100% natural feed supplement that significantly reduces methane emissions from the enteric fermentation of ruminants. It is based on a proprietary combination of garlic and citrus extract and is produced in a pellet format. Our research shows up to 38% reduction* of enteric methane emissions under real farm conditions (in vivo). Without impacting taste or texture of milk or meat, Mootral Ruminant can also help increase yields, animal health and reduce the number of flies. Additionally, carbon credits can help (co)finance the product costs. *Dependent on animal breed, age, farm conditions and feed regime
