Cover for Carbon footprints of food of animal origin.

Animal production contributes substantially to global greenhouse gas emissions (about 14.5%). So-called carbon footprints (CFs) consider the greenhouse gas potential of climate-relevant gases (e.g. CO2 × 1; CH4 × 23; N2O × 296), which is given in carbon dioxide (CO2)-equivalent g-1 or kg-1 of...

Cover for Immunization and tannins in livestock enteric methane amelioration.

The complexity of the rumen microbial ecosystem supports the efficient conversion of various carbohydrates to volatile fatty acids for fulfilling host energy requirement via stepwise disposal of hydrogen (H2) through the reduction of carbon dioxide (CO2) to methane (CH4). Although, this mechanism...
