Ruminant Livestock Efficiency Program
The Ruminant Livestock Efficiency Program is designed to help livestock producers in key regions of the country to improve the productivity of their operations. Land-grant universities and USDA researchers are conducting regional assessments to identify improved management practices, technologies, and marketing options that will improve productivity while reducing methane emissions. In conjunction with these studies, extension services will promote the most profitable and appropriate options for reducing methane emissions from beef cows. Local conservation districts will promote cost-effective livestock management plans that will improve animal performance while enhancing forage resources.
