Nitrate and sulfate: Effective alternative hydrogen sinks for mitigation of ruminal methane production in sheep.
Twenty male crossbred Texel lambs were used in a 2 × 2 factorial design experiment to assess the effect of dietary addition of nitrate (2.6% of dry matter) and sulfate (2.6% of dry matter) on entericExpand

The effect of incremental levels of dietary nitrate on methane emissions in Holstein steers and performance in Nelore bulls.
Two experiments were conducted to study effects of dietary nitrate on enteric methane production, blood methemoglobin concentration, and growth rate in cattle. In Exp. 1, 36 Holstein steers (288 ± 25Expand
