Methane Rescue for the Dairy Farm

  Algae Europe December 2022

A​​​​​​​s previously covered here on Algae Planet, there is a lot of research taking place with adding the red seaweed, Asparagopsis taxiformus, to livestock feed in order to reduce enteric emissions. In the first commercial trial in the U.S., the Straus Family Creamery has demonstrated a dramatic reduction in their dairy cows’ emissions by an average of 52 percent, and as much as 90 percent, by using Blue Ocean Barns’ seaweed supplement. The results illustrate that dairy farms can substantially reduce their climate impact.
