BovReg project joins forces with Canada to reduce cow emissions and combat climate change
Climate change is a constant in news headlines and cattle continue to be identified as a significant contributor to greenhouse gas emissions. Selecting more efficient cows that produce less methane can help contribute to reaching net zero targets. The Canadian dairy industry has recently introduced genetic evaluations for methane efficiency. This tool was built from research conducted by Canadian teams, now also partnering with European researchers in the BovReg project: Together they are working to improve the accuracy of genomic predictions based on new data from diverse cattle breeds.
