How the world sees NZ livestock emissions

This report distributed worldwide by Reuters and carried by NBC News in US shows how the world is watching New Zealand deal with livestock methane emissions. We're in the spotlight!

A favourable report in this case, noting that New Zealand has pledged to cut biogenic methane emissions by 10% on 2017 levels by 2030 and by up to 47% by 2050, and will become in 2025 the first nation to price agricultural emissions.

The focus of the report is on trials on a Massey University research farm indicating that calves emit up to 20% less methane when they receive a Kowbucha-based probiotic supplement.
