Given the projected growth of methane emission by ruminants in developing countries, there is a clear need for reliable estimates of their contribution to greenhouse gas emissions. Existing studies have rarely considered sheep and goats. The objective of this study was to predict enteric fermentation methane emission factors (EFs) for Djallonké sheep and West African Dwarf goats, following the 2006 IPCC Tier 2 methodology. Estimated enteric methane emission factors, expressed per head of animal… CONTINUE READING
