Livestock have been eating seaweed for centuries in coastal areas, and using seaweed as a feed additive for extra protein and improved animal health is nothing new. However, adding seaweed to animals’ diet specifically to reduce their methane production is a relatively new idea.
Adding 0.2% of the seaweed Asparagopsis has been proven to reduce methane production in cows with 98%, simultaneously improving weight gain by 42%.
