The Netherlands: research on methane production

In Holland, research by Wageningen University & Research shows that the volume of methane that cows produce when digesting grass silage is determined by the proportion of cell walls or NDF (neutral detergent fibre). The more NDF the higher the emission. With maize silages also the starch content is important. The less starch the lower the emission.
