Sustainable emission models for environmentally sound cattle feeding (NEMUR)


Recommendations for the design of low-emission feed rations without compromising performance and animal health



  • Feed ration design for dairy cows that varies in terms of energy and nutrient concentration, including the use of feeds produced in a resource-efficient manner
  • Animal-specific recording of methane emissions and animal health / animal welfare with the help of the use of various sensors
  • Genotyping of the experimental animals to take into account animal genetic influences
