RumenShield Dairy - Non-Medicated Feed Additive to Improve Milk Yield in Dairy Cows

Project description

Cows may soon produce more milk and less methane without antibiotics

Livestock, and particularly cattle, are the largest source of methane in the EU. EU dairy farmers have been at a disadvantage since 2006 when the use of antibiotics that increase productivity was banned. RumenShield Dairy wants EU farmers leading the pack. Its novel non-antibiotic feed additive has shown an exciting increase in milk output, far surpassing their competitors, while also decreasing methane emissions by more than 60 %. Even better, the additive reduces mastitis and increases fertility. Taken together, the product promises tremendous increases in revenue and reductions in greenhouse gas emissions, with no antibiotics in the milk we drink.
