SOP STAR COW - A solution to reduce enteric GHG emissions, benefiting the environment and improving dairy cows productivity

SOP STAR COW is a complementary feed, that promotes the well-being of dairy cattle, by a contemporary action on the cows digestive, immune and neuroendocrine systems, to improve the quality and quantity of milk production. In addition to that, SOP STAR COWS improves the condition of the animals bedding, reducing odours and ammonia directly in the barns. SOP STAR COW has also been proven to reduce enteric emissions: methane production is reduced by over 20% and CO2 by over 18% in production animals. SOP STAR COW is a solution to improve the sustainability of dairy production by giving economic benefits to the farmers, improving milk production, in quality and quantity. In addition, SOP STAR COW has strong environmental benefits, reducing GHG emissions from dairy and odours and ammonia from the farms.
