Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Livestock Production (Hardback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Cattle are a major source of non-CO2 greenhouse gas emissions: methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O) and ammonia (NH3). This collection reviews the range of research on ways of reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from livestock production.

Part 1 reviews the genetics, measurement and modelling of methane emissions from cattle. Chapters cover what we know about rumen function and genetics in relation to methane emissions, ways of measuring and modelling emissions. Part 2 reviews the contribution of breeding, housing and husbandry practices including manure management. Part 3 assesses nutritional approaches to reducing emissions, from forage and silage to feed supplements such as plant bioactive compounds and direct-fed microbials as well as inhibitors and vaccines to modify the rumen environment.

Dr Richard Baines is Senior Lecturer in International Rural Development and Agri-Food Systems at the internationally-renowned Royal Agricultural University in the UK. Dr Baines has worked with international bodies such as the FAO, national governments and NGOs on the environmental assessment and improvement of crop and livestock production.
