Plant extracts for sustainability

Plant extracts in animal feed can also help in reducing the methane gas formation by ruminants.

Methane is a powerful greenhouse gas and should be minimised to protect the environment from further damage.
 
Studies at the Rowett Research Institute in Aberdeen, UK revealed that certain plant species could inhibit the formation of methane in a more effective and sustainable way.
 
Although the results are promising, more research is needed in this field.
