Finland: pilot project regarding feed additive

In Finland the dairy cooperative Valio and the private meat and food company Atria have during 12 weeks with 400 cows at three different dairy farms tested the Bovaer feed additive that is aimed to reduce methane emissions from cows by around 30 percent. During the pilot period, the cows’ milk production remained normal and no changes were detected in the composition of the milk. Nor was anything unusual detected in the cows’ behaviour and welfare. Based on the results of the pilot, the additive can be safely added to the cow feed, according to Valio.
