Wynnstay Group PLC and partner - Powys, Wales-based agriculture supplies group - Says it is working alongside an unnamed partner on a research project which looks into using daffodils to reduce cattle methane emissions. Says the project is developing a new feed additive using an alkaloid extracted from daffodils, which is known to reduce methane. Says the "Dancing with Daffodils" project is supported by the UK Department of Farming, Environment & Rural Affairs and the UK's national innovation agency, Innovate UK.
Chief Executive Officer Gareth Davies says: "We are delighted to be a consortium partner in the Dancing with Daffodils project, which has the support of Innovate UK and DEFRA. This exciting project has the potential to deliver a breakthrough product for livestock farmers, which will significantly reduce methane emissions and enhance protein utilisation in ruminant animals.
There are significant environmental benefits, and we very much look forward to helping to progress this project to completion and providing the route-to-market for the technology."
