Measuring emissions from cows

October 04, 2022 | Case Study

Cattle emissions represent one of the largest greenhouse gas (GHG) sources in the world. According to the FAO, livestock emissions are 14.5% of all GHG emissions with cattle from beef, milk, and manure production representing roughly two-thirds of that amount. Since 44% of all livestock emissions are in the form of methane, this poses a major sustainability issue since methane is 25× more potent than CO2 at keeping heat trapped in the atmosphere. Recently, GHGSat announced the ability to observe and measure methane emissions from cattle using satellites.
