Reducing greenhouse gas emissions in beef cattle through feeding nitrate containing supplements
RAMP Carbon, Meat and Livestock Australia and the Australian Agriculture Company Pty Ltd.
Methodology determination made. Project applications to implement the methodology determination may be made to the Clean Energy Regulator.
Domestic Offsets Integrity Committee (DOIC) endorsement
The reasons for the DOIC's decision to endorse the methodology are published here in compliance with Section 112 (14A) of the Carbon Credits (Carbon Farming Initiative) Act 2011.
The methodology determination generates abatement by replacing urea lick blocks with nitrate lick blocks for pasture-fed beef cattle, which has the effect of reducing methane emissions from enteric fermentation.
The CFI Beef Nitrates Calculator below has been developed to assist project proponents to estimate the effect of feeding nitrate supplements to pasture fed beef cattle to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
It is a requirement that all projects under the Determination use the Beef Nitrates Calculator to estimate emissions reductions for reporting purposes.
