Cumulative GHG reductions: No data available
Mitigative capacity:

In this scenario animal numbers per area would go down since productivity would have been enhanced which includes growth rates and milk output of the first generation of improved breeds .This would directly result to methane reduction. The target weight for improved breeds at aged five could go as high as 400kgs, as compared to 1.6 animals to attain a weight of 400kg. This by itself would reduce the amount of methane produce within a given population. The planting of nitrogen fixing crops and the encouragement of spot and zero burning practices might significantly reduce GHG emission."In this scenario animal numbers per area would go down since productivity would have been enhanced which includes growth rates and milk output of the first generation of improved breeds .This would directly result to methane reduction.
