Dietary solutions to inhibit ruminal methanogenesis: Where are we now, where do we go next, and how do we get there?
Dr Joseph McFadden leads a research program at Cornell University focused on dairy cattle nutrition with a focus on improving nutrient digestibility, liver and gut function, and the efficiency of milk production. He is leading the development of a Cornell program and center to evaluate the effects of feed additives and drugs on methane and milk production using standardized procedures with the development of a climate-controlled respiration chamber system to study enteric methane emissions from dairy cattle.

Dr Tom Tylutki, CEO AMTS
Formulating for Profit and a better Environment
Our own, Tom Tylutki, will use the CNCPS-based AMTS formulation model to look at the effect various feeds and diets will have on emissions. The excretion and emission equations in the CNCPS allow you to formulate with those results in mind. Tom will demonstrate, using real diets, ways to consider emissions in formulation. What are the best strategies. This will be very hands on; for more of Tom’s past formulation focused webinars; look at 2015, 2016, 2020, Feb 2021, and Oct 2021
