Methane Emissions Reduction in Livestock Stage 2: Feasibility and Development Grants

Funder:  Federal – Industry

Grant Background: The objectives of the Methane Emissions Reduction in Livestock Stage 2: Feasibility and Development Grants opportunity are to:

  • fast-track the development and commercial readiness of technology solutions to deliver low emission feed supplements to grazing animals at large-scale (considering market reach and productivity and abatement impacts), with a particular emphasis on solutions that have the potential to increase the productivity of the national herd and grazing production systems
  • collect data on the productivity (including labour productivity) and abatement impacts from low emissions feed supplements delivered using technology solutions to grazing animals, to inform updates to the livestock emissions framework
  • engage and collaborate with livestock producers to ensure technology solutions can be implemented in a cost-effective (and ideally productivity-enhancing) way within common grazing management operations and build market interest and acceptance
  • leverage co-investment to develop, validate and demonstrate the technology solutions.

$ Available: Up to $1million.
