FFAR held  an informational webinar on May 24 at 1 p.m. ET to discuss the Greener Cattle Initiative’s call for research applications and learn more about this program.

The Initiative, an industry collaborative created by the Foundation for Food & Agriculture Research (FFAR) and Innovation Center for U.S. Dairy, issued a request for applications to advance enteric methane reduction research. This funding opportunity specifically seeks research to develop scalable technologies that reduce enteric methane emissions and enhance sustainable production of beef and dairy.

This initial request for applications seeks preliminary research that can serve as the basis for future breakthroughs and scalable solutions. The Greener Cattle Initiative welcomes research that mitigates enteric methane emissions in one or more of the following areas:

  • Nutrition and management strategies;
  • Genetic approaches and phenotyping strategies;
  • Rumen microbiome research; or
  • Sensing and data technology.
