Webinar: Can we have our beef and reduce methane too?

Reducing methane emissions is seen as the most effective way to meet international climate commitments. Agriculture in Canada accounts for 30% of all methane emissions, with 70% originating from beef production. How is the industry meeting this challenge with innovative ways to reduce methane emissions?  

In this webinar, we’ll explore where the beef industry is now and where it’s heading in the near term to meet Canada’s climate goals. What does low emission beef production look like? What will it look like? We’ll explore the role of feed additives in low emission production, and options for both natural and synthetic products. What is being done to develop these products and technologies? What are some of the policy challenges in bringing these options to market?
