The purpose of this grant opportunity is to validate and demonstrate technologies to deliver methane-reducing livestock feed supplements to grazing animals and other solutions to reduce methane emissions from grazing livestock (beef and dairy cattle, and sheep) at large scale.

Applicants will need to demonstrate how their proposed solutions will be safe and effective in reducing enteric emissions in an operational environment. Please refer to the grant opportunity guidelines for full details.

The objectives of the grant opportunity are to:

  • fast-track the development and commercial readiness to deliver methane-reducing solutions to grazing animals at large-scale
  • validate and demonstrate the impacts, effectiveness and safety of methane-reducing solutions under Australian operational environments
  • engage and collaborate with livestock producers to ensure methane-reducing solutions can be adopted in a cost-effective way within common grazing management operations
  • leverage co-investment to develop, validate and demonstrate benefits of the methane-reducing solutions.

The intended outcomes of the grant opportunity are:

  • cost-effective delivery of methane-reducing solutions to grazing animals ready for commercialisation
  • improved estimation of the emissions from grazing animals receiving methane-reducing solutions
  • increased market interest in and acceptance of methane-reducing solution for grazing animals.
