Original consultation

We want your views on using feed products to reduce methane emissions from livestock.

Consultation description

UK government wants to understand your views on the use of feed products which can reduce methane emissions from livestock. This is in agreement with the devolved governments of Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland.

The draft proposals will consider:

  • how farmers and agri-businesses can increase adoption of this technology to support more sustainable protein production
  • questions of awareness and perception
  • the current role of feed additives within our farming systems, and
  • potential barriers which would prevent the introduction of methane suppressing feed products
