Livestock and the Environment
In the video, Kristin Hales, Research Animal Scientist, U.S. Meat Animal Research Center, explains enteric methane (natural to all ruminants), factors affecting enteric methane in beef cattle production, and more. Learn more.

Beef Energy and Emissions Frontier (BEEF) program
The Beef Energy and Emissions Frontier (BEEF) is a program targeted towards reducing methane emissions from beef production systems in Nebraska and surrounding regions. Many factors contribute to the reduction in methane emissions and, at the same time, improve animal performance.
