Australian Cattle Council : Yearbook 2009
CA TTLE COUNCIL OF AUSTRALIA YEARBOOK 2009 managing emissions from waste in feedlots, understanding the potential sequestration of carbon in vegetation and soils in grazing systems and adaptation to climate change. MLA coordinated a successful submission for CCRP funding for Reducing Emissions from Livestock. This proposal included co-investment from Dairy Australia and Australian Wool Innovation and several state agencies of universities, with major funders being Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry through CCRP ($11.25 million) and MLA ($3.4 million). This program involves most of the research organisations in Australia with expertise in rumen function and biology as well as specialist projects, for measuring emissions from manure from feedlots. The Reducing emissions from livestock Program includes research to develop more accurate and practical measurement techniques, evaluation of feed additives and supplements and function and activity of rumen systems, genetic selection for low methane phenotypes and looks at both short term gains and more strategic science that promises possible larger reductions.
