Effect of environmental conditions on methane production by ruminants

Effect of environmental conditions on methane production by ruminants

Energy metabolism in animals Proceedings of the 15th symposium on energy metabolism in animals, Snekkersten, Denmark, 11-16 September 2000: 173-176

Methane is an important greenhouse gas, contributing ~18% to the overall radiative forcing that is currently occurring. Enteric fermentation in commercial ruminant livestock represents one of the major agricultural sources of CH4 on a worldwide basis and in the UK, it is estimated (CONAIR) that it contributes some 26% of the national emission to the atmosphere.
