The Ellinbank Research Station is carrying out research to reduce methane emissions from alternative sources of cow feed. A number of feeds have been trialled including canola, cottonseed, hominy meal and brewers grains. Research resultes indicate that for every one per cent increase in dietary fat, there is a corresponding 3.5 percent fall in methane emissions.
