Remote measurement of enteric methane from dairy cows under different activities
The use of a recently developed, proprietary, laser methane detector (LMD) to estimate enteric methane output in dairy cows was initially suggested in an experimental study by Chagunda et al. (2009). The current analysis is one in a series testing the application of the LMD is livestock systems. One major advantage of the LMD is that measurements are taken without any disturbance to the normal activity of the cows. The objective of the current analysis was to determine the effect of the cow’s activity on enteric methane production.
