Methane - Not Just Hot Air

Posted January 12, 2022

With the topic of methane reduction being widely discussed in both Australia and internationally, the Riverina Stockfeeds Nutrition Team has provided a guide to understanding where methane comes from and how farmers can reduce ruminant methane emissions.


National Australian Small Business Champion Award winners, ProAgni, have made significant leaps in the design, research and development of Australia’s first antibiotic and ionophore-free ruminant feeds and supplements to promote animal health while allowing producers to rely less on antibiotics and growth promoters and utilise feed more efficiently.
Riverina customers can greatly benefit from ProAgni’s successfully trialled and tested products, which are proven to improve animal performance by 20%+ through better feed conversion, therefore increasing profitability. Riverina and ProAgni are excited to offer customers a range of products designed to optimise livestock performance.
Protect C is a pellet-style feed which works with cereal grain to provide cattle with essential nutrients free of antibiotics, including ionophores while Protect S is specifically formulated for Sheep. Both products are available in a finished feed and a concentrated version and aim to increase growth rates and decrease the time taken to reach market specifications.
