CH4 Global announced today a new proprietary methane-reducing digestive aide feed formulation for beef feedlot cattle called Methane Tamer Beef Feedlot. The product is the first in a line of products for a full suite of ruminant animals and farming approaches being developed under the Methane Tamer brand. It will initially be commercially available to partners in Australia with global expansion coming in future years. 

The natural product includes the entire Asparagopsis plant, as used in independent, peer-reviewed animal feed studies, and is not a synthetic replication of only one of the active ingredients or an extract from Asparagopsis.

The new formulation, which includes Asparagopsis seaweed, reduces formation of methane in the animal rumen. When processed correctly, Asparagopsis has been scientifically proven to reduce methane emissions in cattle by up to 90% without negative effects on animal welfare or beef quality taste or texture. The proprietary formulation contains superior-quality Asparagopsis and other natural ingredients to support intake by feedlot cattle and easy inclusion in the feeding regimen. 

CH4 Global says the product not only reduces enteric methane emissions from beef feedlot cattle, but also helps support feed efficiency and weight gain, and aids in digestion.
