A feed additive certified to reduce enteric methane production in dairy cows and beef cattle

July 2018
July 2022


AGOLIN RUMINANT is a natural feed supplement, based on carefully selected blend of plant extracts, certified to reduce enteric methane production in dairy cows and beef cattle. 1 g of AGOLIN RUMINANT fed to a cow each day has shown in trials not only a positive effect on performance but also on enteric methane mitigation of about 500 kg CO2-equivalent per annum.

Implementation Stories

Implemented by Barry-Callebaut in Bière (Switzerland) in 2021

Agolin SA, a Swiss based Company which develops and markets feed additives based on botanical compounds, has joined forces with global chocolate producer Barry Callebaut and Gold Standard (GS), a leading carbon reduction project development and verification provider, to establish a methodology in which dairy producers can become suppliers of low carbon milk. Two pilot studies were established, one in the Netherlands and one in the US, involving 65 farms and over 15,000 cows in total in order to develop the methodology for the concept.


The GS methodology confirmed an average reduction of 1,200 metric tonnes (MT) over a six month period in the Netherlands and a reduction of 500 MT by August of 2020 in the US.


The environmental benefits

  • The CO2-eq. saving by feeding AGOLIN RUMIANT to dairy cows can be converted into carbon credits
  • 10'000 kg milk produced with AGOLIN RUMINANT fed cows (1 g / day / animal), show a 9.2 % lower carbon footprint or a reduction of 500 kg CO2-equivalent per cow and year
  • Each ton of AGOLIN RUMINANT has the potential to reduce CO2-eq by 1500 tons (according to trials)

The Financial benefits

  • The economic benefit for a farmer involved in the VCS-Mooh project amounts to CHF 100 / ton of CO2-eq saved
  • Agolin Ruminant fed cows utilise better their feed due to improved digestion (+4% feed efficiency)
