There are 16 projects in the NLMP with major research groups in Australia, who have expertise in the science of rumen biology and livestock management, are collaborating to develop practical on-farm options for reducing methane emissions from livestock while at the same time increasing productivity.

Research is also being undertaken to develop technologies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from animal waste in feedlots within the Manure Consortium led by Australian Pork Limited that includes funding from the Commonwealth Government, MLA, Dairy Australia and other partners.

NLMP objectives:

  • develop practical on-farm options to achieve a significant reduction in methane emissions from livestock
  • quantify the level of abatement achievable while at the same time increasing productivity
  • provide the science to underpin methodologies developed under the Carbon Farming Initiative
