Identification

According to scientific studies the feed additive leads to reduced methane production in ruminants that, in turn, leads to better energy use and consequently improved productivity in the animals.

AGOLIN’s specific food quality plant extracts from herbs and spices, are effective, easy to use and safe. Research trials demonstrate AGOLIN’s potential to positively influence the rumen microbiota. In addition to increased productivity, animal wellbeing is improved and feed costs for farmers are reduced. According to an independent opinion, which is based on a meta-analysis, the use of AGOLIN within an average diet reduces enteric methane emission by 14 % per liter of milk or 10 % per animal. Feeding the world’s cattle population with AGOLIN would reduce the total greenhouse gas emissions by 200 million tons of CO2-eq.
