A focus on cow burps and farts has led Rabobank to name Locus Animal Nutrition (Locus AN) one of 15 top agtech startups developing solutions for a sustainable food system. As part of the recognition, the new operating company of Locus Fermentation Solutions participated in the FoodBytes! Pitch discovery program aimed at scaling its feed additives for cattle—which show massive potential in reducing methane emissions while enhancing productivity.
Preliminary data from a trial evaluating a Locus Fermentation Solutions’ microbe in cattle at UC Davis showed significant reduction in methane emissions in cows, without sacrificing animal health or performance.
Scientists are racing the climate clock to find ways to reduce methane emissions from cows—a primary contributor to climate change. Locus Fermentation Solutions (Locus FS) believes it has found the answer.
