Enteric CH4 emissions not only contribute to total agricultural GHG emissions but also represent an energy loss amounting up to 11% of dietary energy consumption. Therefore, reducing enteric CH4 emissions decreases the total agricultural contribution to climate change and can improve productivity through conservation of feed energy. There is potential for mitigation of enteric CH4 emissions through a variety of approaches with a focus on the use of feed additives, dietary manipulation and forage quality.
