The emission of greenhouse gases is a current global issue as global warming and climate change appear a reality. The Kyoto Protocol is an international agreement, which New Zealand (NZ) has signed and under obligations of the agreement, New Zealand must reduce its greenhouse gases (GHG) to the emission levels of the baseline year (1990), by the first ratification of the Protocol in 2008. Methane emissions from ruminant livestock in NZ represent 31.3% of New Zealand’s total greenhouse gas emissions; therefore accurate inventories of methane production for all farmed livestock classes are required.
